Performance Opportunities

Students are expected to participate in a minimum of three activities per year: the Swanz Cup, (formerly the Gold Cup Classic), the Louisiana Music Teachers’ Association Piano Rally and the end of the year recital. These are the three least competitive events offered. There are however, numerous other contests, auditions and festivals in which my students, if they desire, and if the teacher so recommends may participate. Many of these other events involve performing for an audience.
