Every spring Music Star Studios hosts a spring studio recital for all of our students. This year we will present our spring recital on Sunday, April 24. Close to 40 of our students will present songs they have been diligently working on for months. Every year when recital season rolls around I have clients ask if their child is "ready" to perform in our recital; or if they "should" perform in the recital. And my answer is always the same; I encourage every one of my studens who feels comfortable to participate. Even those who don't feel the most comfortable I encourage :)
Recital Season: Should My Child Participate?
Every spring Music Star Studios hosts a spring studio recital for all of our students. This year we will present our spring recital on Sunday, April 24. Close to 40 of our students will present songs they have been diligently working on for months.
At Music Star Studios, we encourage all of our students to participate in our recitals, as they are a very important part of musical study. Below are a few reason why recitals are important:
1. Goal Setting. Working on pieces to present at a recital provide a tangible goal to work towards. This set date of a performance helps your child learn to manage their practice time and learn to “perfect” a piece.
2. Experience Nervousness. Recitals will allow your child to feel nervous, and to know that those feelings are normal and okay. Giving your child an opportunity to experience these “nervous” feelings early can give your child confidence. This experience in front of a crowd will also serve them well in many other areas of their life as they grow!
3. Live Music. Recitals give your child the chance to hear live music, and also provide a place for your child to hear a wide variety of music. Being an active participant of this live music event also provides a chance for your child to see “where they can go” as they watch and listen to more advanced students. This experience can be very motivating and help them experience the pride that comes from becoming proficient in an instrument.
4. Family Pride. Recital participation gives you an opportunity to show your child that you value their musicl involvement. Taking the time out of your busy schedule to go to their recital supports your child and their peers, and illustrates that your family values music. This is also a perfect chance to involve extended family; aunts, uncles, grandparents.
Participating in recitals is a great way to be recognized for all the hard work that your child puts into their music lessons. It is also a great way for your child to take ownership of their music lessons and remain motivated in their studies.
We invite you to join us at our Spring Recital on Sunday, April 24 to hear a sampling of our talented students.
If you have a motivated child ready to learn, we invite you to join our musical family by contacting Music Star Studios today!
