Live student performances
Come in for a lesson, walk out a performer! It happens all the time at Eden Casteel Music Studio.
A while back, I noticed that many of my students were actively searching for fun, supportive places to sing the live music they were learning in lessons. Not everyone wanted to be in a musical. Karaoke was too loud. Formal recitals brought back memories of clammy palms and boring songs. There just weren't enough opportunities.
My solution: Live Student Showcases, held about every two months. The stage can be a local music hall, a theater, the community room at a nursing home, and sometimes my very own living room! Students use quality sound equipment, are backed by professional musicians, and perform for invited friends and family! It's all recorded live and broadcast on YouTube or Facebook, so far-away fans can join in the fun or watch later!
Live Student Showcases are a win/win, because when you perform, you progress faster in lessons.
Not quite ready for prime time? Sing in the studio and share it online (we can make a video during your lesson!). Ready for more? I'll help you prepare and perform in a full-fledged solo showcase!

LIVe from the living room
I have a very groovy 70s style sunken living room. It's perfect for intimate gatherings and musicmaking! Jazz, pop and musical theater songs performed in my living room (with a full band!) in March 2018.
Performances of love songs (and anti-love songs) by six singers. One performed originals from her latest album, one had her sons for her band, and one did a "love song for sharks". Live at Pump House Music Works, February 2018.
THREE'S COMPANY: A CAbaret
Songs, laughter, and personal stories shared by a trio of talented singers, with full band. Live at Pump House Music Works, October 2017, benefitting the Tori Lynn Andreozzi Foundation.
