The Music Villa School of Music holds regular recital-style performances in front of a live crowd. It's a chance for students to play solo or collaborate with other students to form groups and perform live.

Performances usually happen during the spring season at an actual music venue with full sound, stage, and lighting. It's a great opportunity for the students to experience a live music setting in front of their family and friends!
