Jazz Pop Festivals
Every year in October/November, the Pearland Music Teachers Association (pearlandmta.com) provides an opportunity for students to perform popular music in a non-adjudicated format with students from other studios in the area. That means you get to get all dressed up, play a memorized Disney, Star Wars, Chris Tomlin, or Scott Joplin piece before a live audience, and listen to the crowd cheer wildly. It’s a fun opportunity to perform fun music without being graded.

BAHA Spring Showcase – Tentative May 1, 2023
An evening of entertainment with other BAHA musicians! Select pianists will play a prepared piece
Nursing Home Recitals – Dates in May
I’ll divide the studio into about 10 students each, and we will go the local nursing homes and play for the residents. Because of the value and importance of this service project, attendance is required unless you have a compelling reason.
