We believe that there’s more to a student’s development than a weekly lesson. Our workshops, concerts and music gatherings are designed to broaden musical knowledge and allow students to meet in a relaxed setting.
Our workshops are open to students of all ages and skill levels. They are held regularly throughout the term and provide students with an opportunity to perform works-in-progress and discuss music theory and history.
We strongly value performance as part of our curriculum and encourage all students to play at our annual concerts, which are always scheduled in January every year. Our upcoming student concert will be held on January 31, 2016 (Sunday) at 5 pm at Hong Kong Congregational Church.
Further performance opportunities are available to our students through participating in our regular music gatherings and open competitions.
