Partners and Links

Welcome to our Partners and Links Page!

Here you will find links to local and national competitions, festivals, performances opportnities, etc. Also links to our partner organizations and individuals, and links to other sites of interest. Hope you visit it often to watch for new references, and will find the contents useful!

Our Studio holds memberships in many professional music organizations, such s associations, unions, groups, etc. Some of those organizations sponsor members-only events designed for students participation, others provide substantial discounts for members on tickets to performances, sheet music and equipment purchases, music services, music related travel booking, etc. In many cases your family membership in our Studio automatically makes you eligible for those benefits through our Studio membership in those organizations, while others may require additional Student memberships or charge member-discounted participation fees.  Please, feel free to ask questions if you aren’t sure how you can use available benefits for specific purposes.
