An end of the year recital is held in May at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD. All school aged students are required to perform. Students are allowed to use their books if they want. There is enough stress in life without requiring them to memorize their pieces. Some of our students have learning disabilities and this levels the playing field. Trophies are awarded for most improved in several catagories, not participation. At the recital, one student is awarded a full scholarship to study with Joanne Sayre the following year.
