One of the most important benefits for students is performing in a recital. The student has worked very hard, faced the fear of playing in front of an audience, and is encouraged with enthusiastic applause. This is one of the most rewarding results of the recital. This is the when the student feels a sense of accomplishment and special and appreciated for their hard work. This is when they realize it is all worth it. This is when they say, “Let’s do that again!” Experiencing this moment at any age can help the student musician to become more self-confidant like nothing else.
