Piano Recitals and Piano Instruction Manuals

Three annual piano recitals are offered at Chandler Center for the Arts. These recitals are based on themes which allow the student to become familiar with composers and various styles of music literature. Titles for these recitals are- The Age of Romanticism, Mozart: Of Elegance and Order,Beethoven: Composer and Revolutionary, Music of the Masters, Americana and Music of the Cinema. An annual recital, The Music of Christmas, includes a professional instrumental ensemble of flute, oboe, violin, viola, cello, and percussion.

The development of a complete and integrated piano method was the result of 25 years of study, research, and practical studio experience. The result is the Studio Manual for Piano. This instruction manual is available in two volumes and covers all of the theory, technical, reading and aural skills necessary for the advancement of all disciplined students of the piano.
