NEPS offers four studio recitals that are open to all students throughout the year. These are wonderful opportunities for students to share their talent with their family, friends, and community in a recital setting. Recitals are never mandatory but are strongly encouraged to further the training that each student receives on a weekly basis. Recitals help to set and achieve short term goals and help students to become a confident, independent musician.
The purpose of the Fall Festival is to provide an opportunity for students to perform in a non-competitive setting and receive positive critiques from New Hampshire Music Teacher Association teachers. Each year a special focus will be chosen, such as style period, composer, or genre. By playing in a recital setting, students will be exposed to a variety of repertoire and to other students’ playing similar compositions.
The New Hampshire Music Teachers Association Student Evaluation Program is an opportunity for students of NHMTA members to perform pieces of music for an adjudicator and be evaluated. Each student’s performance is private, non-competitive and not graded.
