The Gilmore KeysFest is an annual day-long festival for West Michigan piano students grades 1-12. Students will perform in a master class environment with an audience of supportive peers and adults. They will receive one-on-one instruction from professional pianists and educators, and participate in workshops and performances by KeysFest clinicians and other guest presenters.
Join us Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM in the Epic Center in downtown Kalamazoo.
- Parents must have the signed permission of their piano teacher.
- Students choose one selection, with the help of their teacher, and prepare it for performance. Beginning students may play two pieces, not to exceed 1.5 minutes.
- Students should be very comfortable performing the piece and starting at various spots in the piece.
- Piano selections do not need to be memorized; however, they should be well-prepared.
- Students must bring one copy of the music, with measures numbered.
- Sessions range from 30 to 90 minutes, and students should plan to be present for the duration of the class.
