Whether it’s their very first time, or they’ve done 10 of them over the years, there are always efficient ways to get ready for student recitals ahead of time to do your best! We would love to give you some helpful pointers on how to prepare your child for student recitals.
Here are some pointers on how to prepare for the student recital.
You’d be surprised how helpful it is to spend a bit of time working on the piece for just 15 minutes each day. At least 8 weeks before the recital, you want to be able to play your piece with few mistakes. Even if it’s not at full speed or phrasing and breathing aren’t completely situated.
It is so beneficial to hear back what it is you are working on for your student recital. This will help you to isolate problem areas within the piece and try to minimize mistakes in practice.
By doing this, you are getting a feel for a well-done performance of the piece you will soon perform. You can see and hear how the musician phrases, breathes and expresses the music.
This is a great tip, so you can visualize your performance and be sure it is stage-ready!
Where will the recital be held? What time is the recital of your child’s teacher’s studio performing? These details will be sent via email and it is important to look out for that.
For the day of the recital…
