Prep Piano Workshops & Recitals

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. Students must be registered for at least 24 lessons per academic year with an NEC faculty member in order to participate in the piano workshop/recital program.

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. All performances must be approved by the teacher.

Piano workshops and recitals are from 12:00-1:00 PM.
