Recitals, Fishtown 2015 Highlights
We fit students of all ages, family, friends, cellos, violins, guitars, amps, and chairs galore into our cozy space in Fishtown! With tulip vases in the windows, cheese and wine for enjoyment, original compositions, rock and classical pieces to entertain, the sounds of piano, electric guitar, and even the “Game of Thrones” theme song echoed throughout the space. With its exposed beams, brick, and wood floors, our studio is a unique place to host shows – We can’t wait for First Friday events and new performance opportunities in the Fall!
Violin, Cello, Guitar, Bass, Piano, and Ensemble Performances at Philly Music Lessons
Our casual, home-style showcase of student work ended up being a great success! It marks the start of a Spring recital tradition of low-key performances at our space, which we hope grows into a series of community events where neighbors, kids, and passers-by can come and see what learning music is all about.
This was our first time hosting everyone here in our Fishtown/Kensington neighborhood. Up until now, we held our biannual recitals at other venues throughout Philly (The Church of the Holy Trinity on Rittenhouse Square in Center City, and the Ukrainian League in Fairmount). While we will continue to offer recitals at great spaces throughout the city (this Fall, the recital will be at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square), we look forward to inviting students, teachers, and their families to our space again for some wine, cheese, and student performances at Philly Music Lessons next Spring. In the meantime, check out the highlights video from this years recital (above).
