Music Student Development - Music Notes Academy

Connect ✰ Practice ✰ Develop ✰ Perform

TiedNotes is our student duets program. Created by Sean, our Chairperson of Wind Instrument Studies, TiedNotes was designed to bring students together to learn and develop their skills as performing musicians.

Students with approximately similar levels of musicianship will get together to practice, share ideas, play duet music and aim to perform in concert together as a group. This partnership will build new relationships, strengthen our students and encourage musical and artistic excellence.

4 Steps to TiedNotes

Connect ✰ Students will further develop musicianship skills when interacting with musicians of similar age and skill level.

Practice ✰ Students will learn from each other, see how other students practice and work together towards musical excellence.

Develop ✰ Students will develop creativity, communication, leadership skills and enthusiasm for performing music.

Perform ✰ Students may perform together, possibly relieving the stress of stage presence while heightening the experience of performing.
