Setting tangible goals, with the help of their private lesson teacher, motivates students and makes it easier to see one’s growth as a musician. This structured process allows Emerging Artists to get excited about practicing, workshops, recitals, and the celebration at Music in May.
Emerging Artists participate in a workshop where they rehearse a work-in-progress, receive coaching by an ANMS faculty member, and are able to hear other Emerging Artists. Each student also performs fully rehearsed pieces on ANMS student recitals and receive written feedback about the performance.
Kick off the year with a pizza party where the Emerging Artist students meet each other, new students receive their EA t-shirt and learn about the year ahead. The Emerging Artist program culminates at ANMS’ all day music festival, Music in May, on May 20, 2017. EA students perform on recitals, receive their medals, trophies and certificates at Music in May.
