Each calendar year starts out with the continuation of our group lessons, the last week of each month.
The Inland Empire Piano Festival, in early February, is held at California Baptist University in Riverside. Students from age 7-18 participate at a very high competitive level.
The next event of the calendar year is the Certificate of Merit evaluations, sponsored by the Music Teachers’ Association of California (MTAC). This evaluation, which covers five areas of musicianship, services over 30,000 students across the state of California.
Following Certificate of Merit is the Branch Honors Recital which highlights those students who finished the evaluations with honors!
One of our main studio recitals is held the first Sunday in June.
In mid-late August the favorite recital of the year occurs. Students collaborate with each other and play in groups of 3, 4, 5 and even more for the Ensemble Recital.
Group lessons resume in September after a summer break.
Another main studio recital is held the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
