Performance Week

 

During Performance Week we’ll be putting our performance skills to the test, usually in preparation for a concert.

Monday May 27-Friday May 31 (C0ncert June 2)
If you are unable to make your studio lesson follow the instructions below for recording at home.

Students are working on polishing one special piece that they will be showing off; most will have chosen already and some will narrow their choice down over the next few weeks. To encourage as many performance opportunities as possible I’ve encouraged everyone to play for as many people as possible in as creative a way as they can come up with & provided a Performance Prep challenge sheet.

 

Performance Week at Home

  • During your lesson we will cover lots of performance tips & finalise your piece.
  • Record your performance piece at home; the first take is often the best so don’t delete it. Do have a few goes but don’t get in a fankle; the more you stress the harder it is to play.  Take a break, zoom in on any sticky bits and have another try.
  • Wear your tmt t-shirt or hoodie.
  • Take a photo at your piano & send it. Example photos are below. 
  • If your piano is in a bedroom you may wish to move it temporarily to take your video.

Performance Week in-Studio

  • Wear your TMT t-shirt to your lesson & remember your music.
  • We’ll record your perfomance piece here & take photos to mark the occasion. 

Photos & video will only be shared in accordance with your current media permissions.  You can check and update your choices by emailing me.

Students can opt out of photographs and are given the choice of looking at the camera or having their photo taken while they play.
