Thank you for participating in our recital. Recitals will help you as a musician to work on your stage presence and give you an opportunity to perform for your friends, family, and other musicians. It is also a good opportunity to set some performance goals and have songs performance ready. The more you perform the easier it becomes to perform. If you have any questions regarding stage presence or stage fright, see your instructor for some tips!

The recitals will be held on Sunday, October 23rd and October 30th at Alpharetta Presbyterian Church. Please view the program above to find out which recital and session your student is in.
