Recitals provide a tangible goal to work towards. In having a set date and a pre-planned performance selection, your child learns how to manage their practice time and what it feels like to polish and perfect a piece. Recitals provide a chance for your child to experience nervousness… and to realize that those feelings are okay. We like to protect our children from feeling uncomfortable, but in “real life” these feelings are part-and-parcel of being human. Early experiences with successfully conquering nerves gives children confidence.Recitals give your children the chance to hear live music. Young children rarely attend a lot of live concerts… and music recitals are a wonderful place for your child to hear a wide variety of music.Nothing can replace the “live music experience” and when your child is an active participant in the event it’s even more rewarding! Recitals provide an opportunity for you to sit back and marvel at the pride-inducing sight of your own child making beautiful music! Music practice is often done amongst a busy household with siblings, pets, vacuums, dishwashers and doorbells. It’s rare that you have the opportunity to focus only on your child and the music they are making. These moments matter.
Enrollment is underway for our debut recital at The Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for you or your child to perform
on the most respected concert stage ever built!
