Performances are an important part of our programs here at ISM Nepean, and occur throughout the terms, during lesson times. The regular performances in front of their peers helps build confidence and performance etiquette.
At the end of the year we hold a mini performance in each class for family and friends to enjoy and end off with a Christmas party.
Every year we hold our annual recital in October, at Western Sydney University. This involves all students from ages 4 and up. All students perform from our youngest groups through to our private students. We encourage students to participate in our choir, and extra group performances, as this helps building confidence and personal realtaionships through The students have to opportunity to perform at a professional recital venue with Grand piano, stage and lighting. This recital is compulsory event and showcases the students progress. All family and friends are invited to attend.
Private students wishing to sit practical exams should be aware that it takes a huge amount of effort, determination and stamina and significantly reduces the time available to other more creative pursuits. Students are entered for exams only when they are fully prepared. This is to avoid the situation where a student has to pulled out of an exam due to lack of preparation which is not a pleasant experience for anyone involved. If proceeding, students may choose to sit AMEB, or Trinity Exams and the teacher will help make the decision as to which exam board is best for the student.
