Open to ALL Students, ALL Abilities, ALL Instruments

Location: Lenexa
Who: Open to ALL students
How to Sign Up: At the front counter or call

--What is the REW Festival? The REW Festival is a wonderful opportunity for beginner through advanced students to gain experience performing and receive feedback from one of KC's most respected music educators, Curtis Mulvenon!
--What happens at the Festival? At their designated performance time, each student will perform their song (again, it can be as simple as Hot Cross Buns or as complex as a district/state solo/ensemble selection). The clinician will make notes and comments regarding their performance and then take a few minutes to provide feedback and work with the student in a clinic type setting. When they are done, each student will receive a certificate and ribbon.
