Recitals and Studio Events

Frequent recitals, celebrations, work with local music organizations and CSU-Pueblo allow sharing with family, friends and the community at large. Community service projects, encouragement of summer camp attendance outside the studio and an in studio Summer Music Academy are just a small part of the programs the studio offers.  A practice theme for the studio is chosen each year for students.  Activities are centered around that theme for the year.  Music composition plays a huge role in the musical growth of students.
