Preparing Students For a Recital

Prepared students are more confident performers! It is important to prepare your students for what to expect at the recital. A rehearsal is a fabulous way to go over their pieces in order, to practice when to stand up and bow, and from what side to approach the piano, etc. Rehearsals can be done at the regular lesson, or as a separate event.

Mix It Up

Students benefit from stability, but adding a little “spice” will keep things fun! Be sure to keep your recital “routines” the same so students feel comfortable, and rehearse with them beforehand, but consider adding in different recital options as a way to keep the event fun and exciting for your students. For example:

  • Have a casual recital sometimes! Students can wear jeans, sandals, shorts, etc.
  • Host an ensemble-only recital. Ensemble can be piano duets, accompanying a singer or other instrumentalist, and so forth.
  • Create seasonal recitals, such as all Christmas carols, or all Spring themed pieces, etc.
