Virtual Student Showcase
Worried if performers will have to wait until December for the next SoundLife Showcase? Fear not—our “Virtual” Showcase is here!
It seems almost fitting that our 13th Student Showcase would be something completely different. We may not be able to take the stage at Zebulon, but that doesn't mean that we can't experience our students in concert together (through pre-recorded videos streamed online), cheer them on (through "chat" during our Watch Party on YouTube Premiere), snack on greasy bar food (compliments of your own kitchen), and celebrate and elevate these rock stars (you'd be doing this anyway, right?) on Saturday, May 30 at 3:00pm!
Performance and community are principal components of learning to speak the language of music. Performance refines the material learned in music lessons and gives students the opportunity to share their skills with friends, family, and other students. With each performance, students gain noticeable self-confidence and demonstrate unquestionable improvement on their instrument and on stage. With this in mind, we've created a one-of-a-kind experience that gives each and every student, beginner to advanced, the chance to be a rockstar. Students are welcome to perform solo, with their instructor, with their own band, or with our house band of professional musicians!
*Registration includes an edited virtual performance video.
Registering here will put your name on the guest list. Student performers do not need to RSVP.
