The Palisades School of Music is a performance school; we provide numerous opportunities for the young student to appear in public.  At the most basic level, we encourage students to appear in Master classes where in a low stress atmosphere, they will perform and know how to present themselves to an audience.  They learn how to deal with nervousness and how to recover from mistakes.  All of the MC's are videotaped, so that if a student makes a mistake; instead of hating themselves and telling themselves that they have no talent, with the help of the video they can analyze the mistake, i.e., "I played the "E" key instead of the "F" key, then they can repair the mistake by practicing that passage twenty or thirty times (A five minute operation), and come to another Master Class and try again. Sometimes at the next Master Class the student will make that same mistake, in which case it is back to the drawing board and we repeat the sequence. At other times; that mistake will be repaired and a new one will appear.  The bottom line is that the student soon understands that a mistake made at a performance, is not the end of the world and something to be dreaded, but something that can be prepared for.  When students have important performances coming up, they appear in Master Classes frequently to test their preparation, so that before their important performance takes place, every mistake that can possibly happen has already happened and was repaired and reinforced.  Once the student has performed in a Master Class with music, the next step is to play in the Master Class from memory.

 
Master Classes are held at the school on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 P.M. If you are scheduled to perform in an audition, recital or competition, it is required that you attend at least two Master Classes (two weeks consecutively) prior to the event. If you have any questions, please call the school.

Every Tuesday throughout the year, unless notification given if otherwise.

The Palisades school of Music is a performance school; we provide numerous opportunities for the young student to appear in public.  At the most basic level, we encourage students to appear in Master classes, where in a low stress atmosphere, students can play for their peers and other student's parents. They learn how to bow, how to announce the pieces that they will perform, and how to present themselves to an audience.  They learn how to deal with nervousness and how to recover from mistakes.  All of the MC's are videotaped, so that if a student makes a mistake; instead of hating themselves and telling themselves that they have no talent, with the help of the video they can analyze the mistake, i.e., " I played the "E" key instead of the "F" key, then they can repair the mistake by practicing that passage twenty or thirty times

(A five minute operation), and come to another Master Class and try again. Sometimes at the next Master Class the student will make that same mistake, in which case it is back to the drawing board and we repeat the sequence.  At other times; that mistake will be repaired and a new one will appear.  The bottom line is that the student soon understands that a mistake made at a performance, is not the end of the world and something to be dreaded, but something that can be prepared against.  When students have important performances coming up, they appear in Master Classes frequently to test their preparation, so that before the important performance happens, every mistake that can possibly happen, has
