Recitals are exciting opportunities for music students to share their love of music. They provide a tangible goal to work towards. In having a set date and a pre-planned performance selection, students learn to manage their practice time and how it feels to polish and perfect a piece.
The feeling of success after practicing to achieve their goal boosts confidence and self-esteem. Performing gives a student the recognition they deserve for their hard work. It's a chance for families and friends to see how far a student has come and to become an active participant in an event of great importance to the student. Recitals also give students time to hear live music as their peers perform. Listening to live music at a recital elevates instrument and singing lessons and is another important element in improving their craft.
