Additional Piano Programs
The Order of Ebony and Ivory
Supporting the advancement inherent in The Music Development Program, The Order of Ebony and Ivory provides a graduated technical challenge program of scales, chords, and other technical requirements which will train the student for success. Students receive medals upon completion of each level, with various colored neck ribbons and medal signifying their level of achievement from Apprentice Magician (white ribbon, bronze medal) to Arch Mage (black ribbon, gold medal).
Teachers Association Recitals
These events, sponsored by the Eastside Music Teacher's Association four times a year, allow students to learn the art of performance along with students from other teachers in the area. This is a wonderful low-key opportunity for students to gain performance confidence and share their musical accomplishments with others. Students may participate 1-2 times during the year. There is no additional fee to participate.
At least once a year, the students of Stan Watkins Piano Studio produce a recital. These semi-formal events provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their progress, gain self-assurance in their performance ability, and gain project management skills as they set goals and prepare for a major event. Students are encouraged to perform from memory at these recitals. Family and friends are invited to support their students by their attendance and appreciation. Students may participate in the studio recital without any additional fee.
