How to Get Ready for Your First Piano Recital

How to prepare for a Piano Recital Start planningyour repertoire (the songs you'll be performing) with your teacher. Having your songs picked out at least 3-4 months before your recital gives you plenty of time to practice! Months Before In your lessons, work with your teacher on improving your rhythm, as well as mastering the melody and chords. Months Before In between lessons, practice your pieces! Work on the left and righthand separately, and then practice with both hands together. Don't overwhelm yourself trying to learn entire songs in one sitting. Break it down: work on 16 measures at a time, or one page at a time. This is the most crucial time before the recital, so make sure you are not slacking off! 1 If you feel prepared, try challenging yourself by memorizing your pieces. Month Before Try recordingyourself playing, so you can identify areas you still need to work on. Listen to professlonal recordings of your pleces. Make sure you know the logistics of the Week Before recital. What time shouldyou arrive? How should you dress? Will the recital be indoors or outdoors? Put on a mock recital In front of your friends and family. DAY Get a good night's rest, and eat a OF THE well-balanced meal. RECITAL Bring extra coples of your music, as well as snacks and water. Wear comfortable shoes. Make sure you warm up! Run through some scales and arpegglos, stretch your muscles, and keep your hands warm and loose. Breathe! Imagine your performance going well, and stay positive. Good Luck! t0 takelessons
