Students are asked to dress for success. Nothing over the top, but something that looks professional.
No sneakers, jeans or T-shirts please.

What To Bring

Music will be provided, but if you have your own personal sheet of music with specifc notes made during lesson times, you should bring that. Students should bring your own instrument unless told otherwise. Pianos and drums will be provided.

Your Help/Consessions

We are looking for some assistance backstage and with our concessions. If you are interested in helping out backstage with the organization of students, please contact us. Duties include checking in students and maintaining a calm professional atmosphere. This, fortunately, has never been an issue. If you would like to bake or bring something for concessions, please email us at
The goal is to make one portion snacks that will cost a dollar and can be dropped off when you arrive.

Ready to Rock!

We are extremely excited to see what the students will accomplish this year and can’t wait for them to showcase their talent. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.


Once again, thanks for your support.

* Please keep in mind that with the gathering of this many students, patience and understanding is required.  While our expectations are very high for a smooth running operation we are always learning. Students & parents should understand that these performances are simply used to help students find comfort with performing in front of a live audience and gain experience. The fact that students are willing to put themselves on stage in front of an audience is itself an accomplishment. Know that we are continually striving to enrich our student’s lives through education and experience, and appreciate your continued support in helping grow our musical community.
