What makes us the best music school in the area?
All of our teachers hold a degree in music from an accredited 4-year University. They all participate in varying performances throughout each year, not only here in state, but nationally and internationally as well. Their availability and their personalities come in a broad scope and better allow Avanti Music Academy to suit each individual students’ needs. We focus on private, one-on-one lesson environments to ensure maximum growth and retention through a conservatory level approach. We also take pride in our ability and willingness to teach any and all styles of music. We work hard to bring many unique local, national, and international performance opportunities and programs to our student body
Studio Recital: These recitals are designed to introduce performing to the beginning/inexperienced student in a personal, comfortable, and supportive environment. However, they are open to any level of student who wants to gain some performance experience in a less formal setting. These are put on for individual teacher’s studios.
Formal Recital: These recitals are designed to strengthen and develop the more intermediate/advanced students’ performing abilities in a formal, semi-professional environment at Parker Performing Arts. Ensemble numbers (duets, trios, etc.) will be introduced/encouraged at this level, and teacher approval must be given to participate.
Premier Showcase: These concerts are designed to showcase and further develop the more experienced, intermediate/advanced students’ performing abilities in a full theater, highly professional environment. Ensemble and group numbers ranging in all genres from classical and instrumental, to Jazz, rock, and pop, are the focus of this performance. Students will play in a band/ensemble setting with other advanced students and Avanti teachers to put on an amazing show! This is an audition only performance at Parker Performing Arts.
A New York based program whose proceeds go toward autism research. Students audition to be in a group that travels to New York City to perform on the stage of the Gershwin Theater. They will also receive invaluable coaching and training from working Broadway singers and actors to refine their group number to perform on stage. The trip also includes tourism opportunities in the world’s largest city, and wraps up with a viewing of “Wicked” on Broadway and a trip to see many sight in NYC.
On the second Saturday evening of each month, Avanti is transformed into a small, laid back performance venue for students to come a play or sing anything they wish! Teachers and other students will join in for these performances and it is a great opportunity to collaborate with other intermediate/advanced musicians. ANY friends, families, and peers are always welcome! Food and drinks are served. The event is always free for Avanti students.
Performance and Masterclasses
Our Performance/Masterclass Program sets us apart and adds that extra educational experience that parents and students look forward to and love. These are put on once per semester for each instrument group. The Masterclass is like a big group lesson that also acts as a dress rehearsal for the recital. During the Masterclass, the students perform an excerpt from a piece they are currently working on for an audience of peers, parents, and instructors. This is a fantastic chance for them to see how the student is developing musically and also to get feedback from teachers the student doesn’t get an opportunity to work with otherwise. These focus on one instrument at a time, and sometimes feature Master guests!
Our commitment policy has set a strong foundation for our students. When they sign on to take lessons, they are signing on for the rewards and the challenges of learning music. Our teachers are invested in the success of their students and will do everything to support and encourage them through music’s difficult learning curve. Students will be given several opportunities to perform in Jam Sessions, local events, and a multi-tiered Recital Program that encompasses the power of LIVE music, played by trained professionals, with the students, on the Main Theater Stage at Parker Performance Arts!!
