– Bo Diddley

Concert Information

There is more to music education than lessons and practice, and learning to play both with and in front of others are as important as developing your technique and musicianship. The New School’s Friday Casual Concerts are a great opportunity for students of all instruments and genres to play in public, in a relaxed and supportive setting, before friends, family and other students. These brief concerts, which take place monthly on Friday evenings at 7 pm in the school, allow individual students and ensembles to perform in public, show off their skills and learn how to cope with nerves. They are also highly recommended for students preparing for grade exams.

Your teacher will recommend the best concert date(s) for you. Students of melody instruments or voice who require a school accompanist at a Casual Concert are asked to contribute €10 to help cover this cost.
