Parents visiting or who are new to the Franklin Music Academy, may not know that our recitals and events are fun, comfortable, and entertaining... quite different from the stiff and rigid recitals that you may have endured in the past.

Each recital will showcase students performing an array of light classical music, jazz, classic 20th century pop music, and traditional folk songs from around the world.

The vast repertoire performed by the students either in an ensemble or individually, scaled down to a "junior" level, functions as both a source of joy and inspiration for the listening audience, as well as an educational experience for the group's members.

We encourage students and their parents to invite their friends and family to the recitals. Our students work hard to play a number of songs throughout the year and there is no better feeling when everyone shows up to cheer them on.

If your child is new to the Franklin Music Academy and will not be participating in an upcoming recital, we highly encourage you and your child to attend so they know what to expect.



Spring Social Concert Recital

We are hoping to make this an annual event in our community. Our aim is to entertain the residents of Tanglewood Forest and surrounding neighborhoods by providing musical entertainment from our school and encourage interaction between neighbors. We have held private performances at different venues in Austin, but the Spring Social event in the park will be our first public event.

As the Spring Social event nears, we will have more information on when students of the Franklin Music Academy should arrive for FREE face painting and instrument tuning.

Please feel free to invite guests to 1st Annual Spring Social in the park. Our event can be shared via Facebook and Nextdoor.
