Do you organise concerts for students to performance?
Yes we do, we organise student concerts and music festival annually.
We encourage students perform on stage as much as possible, especially in their young age. That is the reason whey we have been organising annual Solo Concerts for student to perform their solo pieces either by themselves or with their teacher (for beginners). Students get to be part of the concert and practice performing on stage, as well as enjoying other students and teacher's performance to get inspired.
We also organise music festival which in the past has included Gala Concert, master classes, workshops, and music related activities. In the Gala Concert, we get students to participate and perform in groups: Junior and Senior String Orchestra, Junior and Senior Guitar Ensembles, Choirs, Early Childhood Music Group etc
