Benefits of having a recital include:
Parents enjoy hearing the progress of their child.
Parents and grandparents love attending these performances and taking picture/video recordings of their child's performance, especially when it's their first recital.
There's something special about watching your child all dressed up and playing a special piece for an audience onstage.
The benefits for the students are of great importance. It provides direction to their piano study. Students enjoy having a long term goal such as performing at a recital.
A recital provides the student opportunity to give them a more challenging piece to work on.
Recitals allow each student to hear their fellow students play. This is important for two reasons:
a) Hearing the young beginners play reminds them how far they have progressed since their first lesson.
b) Hearing the more advanced students encourages them to aspire to become a more accomplished pianist.
Students perform a variety of piano compositions at our annual recital at Waipuna Chapel, located at 17 Omaopio Rd., Kula. Recitals are free and open to the public.
