Voice & Piano Recital
Monday, December 1, 7:30pm - Campana Chapel
Under the direction of Mr. Zach Rohlwing, our new programs in Voice and Piano offers, to any student, the opportunity to start or continue their vocal or piano studies through an intensive, one-on-one, entirely individualized weekly lesson. These lessons challenge students to hone their technical and musical skills using a variety of methods, repertoire, and experiences. As a supplement to weekly lessons, students participate in studio classes throughout the semester to share their progress with fellow studio members and to prepare themselves for the Studio Recital at the conclusion of each semester. The studio strives to turn musically inclined students into competent and capable musicians who possess the ability and confidence to be active artists in their community and to lead a life steeped in music.
