Music Recitals

Recitals at the Academy

Our recitals are the perfect venue for you or your child to show family and friends the results of months of learning and practice. Our recitals are organized and designed to eliminate "stage fright" and help performers build self-esteem.

At our music recitals, students get exposed to new musical styles and instruments. The recitals help students stay motivated, encouraged and interested by seeing the progress of their peers.

We hold more recitals each year than any other studio in Cedar Rapids and Marion. We pride ourselves on making them the lowest stress, most enjoyable events you will experience.

Our recitals will provide your family with great memories that will last for a lifetime. Call us today and soon your whole family will be enjoying music in a whole new way.

Recital Tips

  • Arrive 15 minutes before the recital to find your place. We ask family groups to sit a minimum of six feet apart from nearby family groups.

  • There is no charge for the music recitals, but we do ask that you bring a non-perishable food donation for the food bank.

  • We will be disinfecting the piano keyboard and music stands between performers.
