Performance events

Book a performance event

Here at Freedom Music Studios we are incredibly passionate about offering our students a regular opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. Sometimes when students stand up in front of an audience they become nervous. This in turn affects their technique and they may not perform or play as well as they had during lessons and practice. The only way to calm your nerves is to…. keep performing!

If you only get the opportunity to perform at one or two annual concerts, it’s going to take a very long time for students to feel more comfortable. That’s why we offer 11 scheduled performance events per year. As well as this, we regularly provide the opportunity for students to perform at local festivals, fetes, shopping centres and charity dinners.

When a student has a performance to prepare for they are far more motivated to practice and attend lessons as they are working towards a goal. After attending a performance, students feel inspired by watching others perform, encouraged by our supportive community and always come out the other side with masses of enthusiasm and a host of ideas towards their next performance!

Because our community meets so regularly, students and families have the opportunity to make new friends and as a result, we have formed the warm and welcoming ‘Freedom Family’.

Sunday sessions

Students are given the opportunity to perform the song they are currently learning in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Family and friends are encouraged to come along and support our budding superstars! Everyone is asked to provide a plate of food to share for afternoon tea. This event is designed to give our students much needed performance experience. Students are encouraged to participate in a number of Sunday Sessions before performing at Cabaret Live!

 

Seasonal Concerts

Students prepare for and perform their song in a professional theatre with a full sized stage, lighting and sound rig. There is tiered seating for audience members and a backstage area. Students are encouraged to treat these events as ‘bigger’ and more ‘professional’ events than our Sunday Sessions. Our concert series consists of Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer Concerts, giving students plenty of opportunities to perform at one or all of them. Our concerts are a stepping stone towards performing at a Cabaret Live!

 

Cabaret Live!

Students get the full performance experience as they are backed by a live band whilst family and friends sit at surrounding tables. A glittering night that will be enjoyed immensely by our students and their families.

 

Community Performances

Throughout the year we have students performing at many local events to again provide them with a different style of performance experience. Events we have been part of in the past include Knox Festival, Stringybark Festival, St Jude’s Fair, Stud Park Shopping Centre, Charity Dinners for River Valley Church Superhero’s Camp, St Simons Community Fair and many more!
