Membership in the Birmingham Metro Music Forum affords numerous opportunities for teacher and student including monthly student recitals held the 1st Saturday of most months at the Alabama Piano Gallery, the January Theory Examinations and Masterclass, and the newly established New Music Festival in the fall.
