Students of LMK Studios have a wide variety of performance opportunities popping up this Spring

Updated: Jan 15

Our studio hosted FOUR Winter Piano Recitals this season. (Actually, THREE Winter Recitals and one "adult gathering"). All events were so much fun! Students prepared 2 pieces for performance. Many holiday classics like "Deck the Halls" and "Jingle Bells" were performed as solos. Students were joined by a variety of fellow music-makers in duet performances with their teachers, parents, siblings, and friends.

Congratulations to all performers! Thank you for sharing your music with one another!
