The Alameda Cello Academy holds semi-annual recitals for students to show off their progress to family and friends. Recitals are a great way to motivate students and performing builds our students' confidence.

The other benefit to holding recitals is the opportunity for students to hear each other play. Hearing beginners perform shows advanced students how far they have progressed since their first lesson. Hearing the more advanced students perform can inspire beginning students to become higher level performers.

Winter 2013-2014 Performances

Our Winter performances at the Water's Edge Lodge, Elders Inn, and at the ACA Recital were a treat. I was very proud of your performances. Thanks for giving to the community in such a great way! We are musicians and so we spread the love around to everyone. It's our job! (I heard Elton John say this once. He's right)
