The Preparatory School workshop/recital system offers students valuable performance experience and a wide range of viewpoints through direct feedback from various instructors. Students are recommended for workshops by their private teacher. After completion of the workshop, written reports made by another member of the faculty are available to the student. Students performing in workshops will normally play in a departmental recital the following week. Each student should participate in at least one workshop/recital per semester.

Preparatory student recitals are scheduled on Saturdays throughout the year. These are free and open to the public. Students are recommended for recital programs based on their performance in workshops. In addition to group recitals, students are encouraged to perform solo recitals at the end of the year. All performances must be approved by the teacher.

All workshops and recitals are from 12:00-1:00pm or from 4:00-5:00pm

Students must be registered for at least 12 lessons to participate in a workship or recital.
