Piano Recitals, Exams and Other Events

Piano Forte Music School offers many opportunities for piano evaluations, piano recitals, and other performance-related activities. Graded music exams such as the ABRSM Exam (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) or the CM (Certificate of Merit) provide a structured framework for progression from beginner to advanced musician. Exams cover performance skill, technique, sight reading, listening skills and understanding of music theory.

Performing music in front of an audience inspires confidence and provides each student with the recognition they deserve for all their hard work. Creating goals, practicing and honing technical skills allows students to perform their best at piano recitals. And every student learns from watching other students perform. This is both inspiring and motivating.

For some added inspiration, we’ve gathered some of our favorite musical quotes:

“Music should strike fire from the heart of man and bring tears from the eyes of woman.” – Ludwig Van Beethoven

“It’s like a whole orchestra, the piano for me.” – Dave Brubeck

“I believe in using the entire piano as a single instrument capable of expressing every possible musical idea.” – Oscar Peterson

I’m able to sometimes express things even more articulately on the piano than I am with singing.” – Harry Connick Jr.

When I had nothing else, I had my mother and the piano. And you know what? They were all I needed.” – Alicia Keys
