Performance Opportunities

Instead of the traditional music lessons and recitals, Jodi offers monthly Performance Workshops for students to hone their performance skills. Each student is given the opportunity monthly to perform in a professional atmosphere, with a professional accompanist, in front of a live audience, and all supported by Jodi’s guidance.

Step out of the music lessons and into the spotlight. Jodi provides opportunities for students to perform where they have to challenge themselves to not only play, but perform and truly grow as an entertainer. Not just a local rental space, but a professional performance stage. Jodi chooses to host her performance workshops in open venues like bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and malls. Each one offering a unique and educational experience for her students. Jodi provides the opportunity to work with other professional musicians and entertainment professionals as they accompany the students in their performances. This challenges students to grow in their ability to lead, direct, and communicate musically with others.
