All-inclusive student showcases

Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it is to have their child participate in a recital.

In June and December, many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. Our recital location has a grand piano, so piano students are not playing on just a keyboard. Our sound system ensures a quality experience for all!

We also offer coffeehouse performance opportunities! Our coffeehouses are small, informal recitals that are held at the studio. This is an excellent way for musicians to prepare for the larger scale recital. These evenings have become invaluable to the growth of the students.

Meet the Director

The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons also foster a student’s personal, social, and academic development. From The Top has an elite faculty and they strive to provide an uplifting environment designed to foster creativity, confidence and joy.

If you’ve been told you are tone-deaf or uncoordinated, I’m here to inform you that everyone can improve their musical skills. As a musician, songwriter and music professor, I've witnessed thousands of students transform their lives in ways they never imagined possible. We make it our mission to help our students explore and develop their talents, wherever their curiosity and interests lead them.
