KC Community Arts does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis.If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
8. All-inclusive Recitals
Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
In May and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. We hold these at prestigious auditoriums such as Columbia College as they have a grand Steinway piano and world class acoustics. We even provide a red carpet and step and repeat banner to make it fun!
9. Picture Day!
We are the only music school in Kansas City that offers a picture day for their students.
Every Spring and Fall we host a free picture day with professional photographer Veritography. This is a service that our student’s parents love as they all want quality photos of their children (example pictured left). Adults are welcome too! Students can bring their instruments to the photo shoot and wear whatever they like.
