NEW Virtual Video Challenge!
While we wait to safely resume the student showcases, we are offering a fun series of video challenges! Check out our first pilot video for our very 1st Christmas Ensemble Video Challenge!
Music Videos – Your Song of Choice
Video record yourself performing the best song in your repertoire and we’ll upload it to our youtube channel (we’ll use the private setting, unless you specify otherwise). You or your parent or guardian will have access to share the private link with friends and family, and students will have the opportunity to comment on each other’s performances via our website’s new private portal. This challenge has a due date of March 21, 2021! Ask your instructor to enroll you in this challenge and we’ll send you some recording tips and a list of other requirements.
Ensemble Video Challenge
Ensemble video challenges are a fun way to collaborate with other students virtually! Song arrangements include multiple parts and skill levels, so as many players as possible can join in the fun! Our next song of choice is “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye. This challenge has a due date of March 21, 2021! Ask your instructor to enroll you in this challenge and we’ll send you some recording tips and a list of other requirements. Ensemble video challenges will be shared publicly on youtube and social media. By enrolling in this challenge, you agree that the video will be shared.
The Potomac Falls Music Student Showcase
Our student showcases are a fun and interactive way for students to develop song repertoire, overcome stage fright, and build audience rapport and stage confidence. The showcases are also an opportunity for students to meet and collaborate with other students.
Student Showcases typically take place 2 times per year at a local restaurant/ music venue for a family fun approach to the traditional recital! Students are encouraged to invite family and friends for a fun evening of music in a dinner theater style format.
Opportunities for special performance prep sessions and ensemble groups are considered based on current student roster and student-instructor availability.
