Beginner to Advance Performance Opportunities

Either you are the most beginner or advanced level student — you can combine the value of enjoyment of piano study with the opportunity to participate in the local, national and international festivals and competitions and at the private adult students recitals with the following informal socializing.

Adult Recital

After Recital Reception

My Studio Recitals are mixed with Junior’s performance. However, it is another chance to perform before friends and parents, no matter which level you are.

SOLO RECITAL: Deborah Brown

You are welcome to perform your own Piano Solo Recital or share it with another Adult Student at the different venues of Atlanta Metro Area – Steinway Piano Gallery, England Piano, Southern Keyboards, Piano Works, Assistant Leaving Homes and Fundraising events. Your teacher will always help you to promote your recital through Atlanta Metro Area Music Chapters and Music Societies. Grateful audience will always appreciate your efforts!


PIANO DUETS: Saeka Hasegawa and Deborah Brown perform Piano Duets by Aram Chatschaturjan and Darius Milhaud at their recital.

You have a choice to play Piano Duets (on one or two pianos) as the most joyful and fulfilling one among music activities. Piano Duets do not require memorization and can sparkle a new friendship or develop the sense of teamwork.

The PIANO CONCERTO repertoire choice is another way to perform in collaboration — with your teacher, in this case.
