Open Mic Night is a tradition we have that dates back to the early days of the music program here at Parker Academy. Although it has evolved over the years with our students and our school, the spirit of the event remains the same. It is an opportunity for any and all students to share the music they love, and gain valuable experience through live performance.
At Parker Academy our instruction is student centered and highly individualized to enhance strengths and support needs. Our music program is no exception. Students get to choose the songs they will be learning and performing, and each song is arranged and tailored to the individuals who will be playing it. By starting from where our students are at, and building our instruction around their strengths and interests, we are able to make the learning experience more meaningful and authentic.
Music is part of what makes us human, it connects us to our feelings and to each other. No matter the style, genre or time period, music has this ability. It is something we value a great deal here at Parker Academy, and it’s on full display at each of our Open Mic Nights.
Thank you to all the friends and families that came out to support these talented young musicians!
