Winter Recital is around the corner - December 18th & 19th

November 2021

Our Winter Recital is just around the corner! We will be having our recital once again streamed online through YouTube and Facebook on Saturday, December 18th and Sunday, December 19th, 2021. Dress up like Avni and Upen did for their winter recital last year and have fun performing your pieces! Teachers will be speaking with students and parents directly regarding which pieces they will be performing. All video submissions will be due by December 4th, 2021.

When sending your files, it’s best to use a file-sharing website such as WeTransfer. You can send files up to 2GB, and don’t need an account! If you want specific instructions on how to use WeTransfer please let us know. When recording your video, make sure to record horizontally/landscape (—–) and in a well-lit room. Have the recording device close to the performer so that we can hear everything clearly. For those using a backing track, make sure the volume is loud enough to hear both the performer and their backing track. Try to avoid recording in front of a window, as the natural light may cause a silhouette on the performer.

Want to catch up on our previous recital videos? Check out our YouTube playlists HERE for the Summer 2021 recital and HERE for the Winter 2020 recital.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask your teachers and the Front Desk staff. We look forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful recital videos very soon!

 

Holiday Challenge

 

Our Practice Challenges are going until the end of the year and we currently are in the time frame for the Holiday Challenge! The number of videos submitted is amazing! We are so proud of everyone who participated in this fun yet educational activity. If you haven’t submitted yours yet, there is still time. All you need to do is send us a video of you playing your original song, the arrangement of your favourite music, or something similar and you can get a limited edition wristband! As well, if you complete all 6 challenges you will be able to receive the brand-new Practice Challenge Trophy! If you have already completed some of the challenges keep an eye out for your wristband — we will be handing them out very soon.

Have your videos rolling for this challenging yet fun activity just like Avani with her Holiday piece “Largo”. Check out other students’ performances of their Holiday Challenge pieces below.

Do you have any questions about the Practice Challenge? Feel free to send us a message or ask us at the front desk; we will always answer any questions you may have. We also have more information on our website here about each individual challenge.

Missed a challenge but still want to submit your entry? You’re more than welcome to! We want to help you get the trophy you’re working so hard towards :)

Happy practicing, everyone!

Musical Ladder Festival

We are super excited to announce a new and exclusive Musical Ladder Festival created for the students participating in the Musical Ladder System. We are the only school in Mississauga with the system and our students have the advantage to be the first to take part in the festival.

The Musical Ladder System was created to encourage music students to continuously perform and grow in their lessons. Learning how to set goals is not just a valuable skill in music, but an essential skill in all aspects of life!

The Musical Ladder Festival is an online event designed to provide valuable performance feedback from professional music adjudicators and world-class musicians. The festival is exclusive to students who attend music schools affiliated with the Musical Ladder System.

The festival is designed to provide music students with a formal platform to gain valuable performance feedback and work towards specific awards. This is similar to music juries offered in college and university music programs. Feedback from a professional can prove invaluable to your personal growth as a young musician.

Students submit video performances to be critiqued by professional musicians and receive feedback and acknowledgment for their hard work.

NOTE: Feedback sheets will include positive performance feedback as well as recommendations for improvement.

Students will receive awards for the following achievement levels:

•95% or above: First Class Honours Trophy, 1st Place Ribbon, Award Certificate, Feedback Sheet, Exclusive Musical Ladder Festival Wristband

• 90% or above: 1st Place Ribbon, Award Certificate, Feedback Sheet, Exclusive Musical Ladder Festival Wristband

•80% – 89%: 2nd Place Ribbon, Award Certificate, Feedback Sheet, Exclusive MusicalLadder Festival Wristband

•70% – 79%: 3rd Place Ribbon, Award Certificate, Feedback Sheet

•Up to 69%: Festival Ribbon, Feedback Sheet, Exclusive Musical Ladder FestivalWristband
