STUDENT MUSICAL PERFORMANCES
The studio will have student musical performances during the course of the year. All students are encouraged to participate.
The students at Bryant’s Music have performed at the following venues: Oakcrest Community Center, Capitol Heights, Maryland; Harmony Hall Regional Center, Fort Washington, Maryland; Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland; Jaycees Oxon Hill Center, Oxon Hill, Maryland; Prince George’s Community College, Largo, Maryland; Zanzibar on the Waterfront, Washington, D.C.; Jordan Kitt’s Music, College Park, Maryland; Martin’s Crosswinds, Greenbelt, Maryland; The Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center, Waldorf, Maryland; and Oxon Hill Library, Oxon Hill, Maryland.
The attire for all musical performances is semi-formal, unless otherwise notified.
It is the parent’s responsibility to see that your child practices. There is a direct relationship between regular practice and student success. Parents should establish a regular practice time for your child that is free from distraction, and give positive reinforcement for your child’s practice. When possible, parents should help their child practice, especially at the beginning levels. If it is not possible to help directly, just being in the room while the child practices is supportive and encouraging.
First year students should practice no less than 30 minutes per day.
Second and third year students should practice no less than 45 minutes per day.
Students in their fourth year and above should practice no less than 60 minutes per day.
Practicing should occur at least six days per week. If this practice requirement is not followed, it is impossible to guarantee that the student will have a successful or positive learning experience.
Our online Practice Log is available for registered students/parents to record practice time, and for our Instructors to post music homework assignments via our website. Simply log into your music studio account using your user name and password via our website. Click on the Practice Log from the drop down People Menu and start recording your practice time.
PIANO AND METRONOME REQUIREMENT
An acoustic or digital piano at home is required for commitment to the study of piano music. Rental arrangements, with options to purchase, are available from your local piano retailers.
Also, each student is expected to have a working metronome and to use it as the teacher requests.
