Here are five reasons (there are more!) why your student should participate in KCMA’s upcoming Student Showcase on June 25th! 1) It’s a terrific way to gain experience performing in front of an audience – a valuable experience for students who are interested in pursuing a career in music and hobbyists alike, as it can help them overcome stage fright and develop a stage presence… 2) It’s a chance to network with other musicians. The Student Showcase is a great way for them to meet other student musicians, which is helpful in building relationships and showcasing their talent and hard work! 3)The Student Showcase is a great opportunity for students to show off their mad skills to a wider audience. Nobody ever took guitar lessons to ONLY play in their bedroom! Yep, a great way to get applause and build confidence…no booing allowed! 4) It’s a lot of fun! The Student Showcase is a great way for students to have fun and ENJOY their music. It’s a chance to celebrate their love of music with other people who share their passion!!! 5) It’s a great way to give back! The Student Showcase’s are a great opportunity for students to give back to the community by sharing their music with others. This aspect should be stressed by their folks. Explain how it’s a rewarding experience (whether they like it or not 🤣) and builds a sense of community with fellow students, the audience and their teachers… We encourage YOU to encourage YOUR YOUNG MUSICIAN to participate in the upcoming Student Showcase on Sunday 6/25! It’s a great opportunity for them to learn, grow, and have fun (and provide adorable FB posts that people LIKE/LOVE)!!!
