We have several new plans for the upcoming school year. One of them that we’re excited about is the HeartStrings program, which is our newly-organized outreach program. Once a month, there will be a planned event in our community where students will offer a short musical program. Venues will include nursing homes, church events, community events, hospital lobbies, and other places.
The purpose of the HeartStrings program is twofold: one, to give students a chance to “try out” the pieces they have learned in a casual, low-pressure performance situation, and most importantly, to share music with others in the community who might not have much of a chance to hear a live performance. Students may play solos, organize themselves into groups of duets and trios etc., or there may be group performances associated with group classes.
Each student is required to sign up for at least one event per year, but there is no limit to how many events you can participate in. A list of events will be given at the beginning of the school year, and sign-up sheets will be posted several weeks before each event.
If you would like to request a performance or have suggestions for a venue, please contact us.
