To help our students have the best possible experience, we have compiled some fun tips for them to follow:

  1. Practice, practice, practice: Encourage your child to practice their piece thoroughly before the recital. The more they practice, the more confident they'll feel on stage.

  2. Start small: Before the actual recital, have your child perform for a small audience of family and friends. This will help them get used to performing in front of others and build their confidence.

  3. Visualize success: Teach your child to visualize themselves performing their piece flawlessly. Positive visualization can boost confidence and help reduce anxiety.

  4. Deep breaths: Remind your child to take deep breaths before going on stage. Deep breathing can help calm nerves and reduce anxiety.

  5. Dress up: Let your child choose a special outfit to wear for the recital. Dressing up can make them feel more confident and excited about the performance.

  6. Focus on the fun: Encourage your child to enjoy the experience rather than worrying about making mistakes. Remind them that mistakes happen to everyone and are part of the learning process.

  7. Smile and make eye contact: Encourage your child to smile and make eye contact with the audience. This helps create a connection and shows confidence.

  8. Applaud for others: Teach your child to be a supportive audience member by clapping and cheering for their fellow performers. This positive energy can help create a friendly and encouraging atmosphere.

  9. Take a bow: Remind your child to take a bow after their performance. It's a fun and rewarding way to acknowledge their hard work and receive applause from the audience.

  10. Celebrate afterward: Regardless of how the performance goes, celebrate your child's effort and bravery. Take them out for a treat or do something special to commemorate their first recital.

Remember, the most important thing is for your child to have fun and enjoy the experience. By focusing on the joy of music and celebrating their accomplishments, they will develop a lifelong love for performing. We look forward to seeing you and your talented children at the Recital!
