Clavinova Fun Fest - October 25-27

What is It?
An opportunity for students throughout the Dallas area to perform solos using special features of the Yamaha Clavinova to enhance their performance.
Why is It?
A great time for students of all ages to have fun creating and performing a piano piece, without competition and in a fun environment.
Who Can Participate?
Anyone age 5 and up who would enjoy performing. You do not need to be a piano student to participate – just someone who would enjoy the experience!
Where is It?
Metroplex Piano Warehouse, 9292 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75243
Who Sponsors It?

Do I Have to Own a Clavinova to Participate?
No. Your teacher has a Clavinova in his studio and will help prepare you for your performance during regularly scheduled lessons.
What is My Time Commitment on that Weekend?
The weekend is broken into 1-hour performance times. You will be asked to attend the full hour that you are scheduled to perform. All attempts will be made to keep family members in the same hour. There will be a grand celebration on Sunday afternoon for all participants, although attendance is not required.
