Live performance is a huge part of study at LJMA. We believe the true understanding comes from what is learned on the stage and encourage all our students to partake in as many performances as possible. For those living in Los Angeles we offer multiple in-person performances every semester.
Please Note - These performances take a lot of work behind the scenes to organize. They are what separate us from other schools and help create the most amazing community for our students to belong to however last year we stumbled across many students cancelling last minute which causes a lot of stress on the staff in terms of time management and organization.
To ensure performances are respected we are therefore requesting that parents let us know which shows they would like to participate in. The first 15 students for each date will be guaranteed a performance time, after that it will be based on availability. Each student gets up to 6 mins of solo stage time for each show and pieces must be approved by their teachers. Most do not use that much time but everyone is welcome to if they choose. Only students that take private lessons with current LJMA teachers may participate.
If students cannot make the show they opted for then they must give a minimum of 2 weeks notice so that their time slot can be offered to another student.
If less than 2 weeks notice is given then students will be charged $20 per show as a no- show fee. This includes sickness.
