Recitals are a great way for young musicians to challenge themselves and show off their hard work and progress. I encourage all of my students to perform - even if they have only been learning piano for a month or two - because the experience instills discipline, builds confidence, and inspires students to do their best. I was especially proud to host two recitals this year. The first was at a beautiful senior living facility, and I chose this location because I want my students to share their music with those who may not have easy access to live music. The second was at the international school where I also teach piano lessons. Both were a great success, and I'm proud of all the hard work and practice my students put in as well as thankful for the support of their friends and family!
