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.
My solution: Live Student Showcases, held several times each year. Sometimes the stage is a local music hall, sometimes it's the community room at a nursing home, and sometimes it's my own living room! We hire a band, use quality sound equipment, and perform for friends and family as they sit on the sofa! 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 (even a little), you progress faster in lessons. Not ready for prime time (yet)? 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.
