But guess what, the excitement doesn't end after the recital, there are still many opportunities to play for others throughout your holiday break.
Parents, why not hear those Christmas pieces on Christmas morning and make sure to have mini-concerts for guests who come over during the holidays! This makes the kids feel great and also helps them get used to playing for an audience.
Do you have family out of town that you won't get to see during the holidays? Share the music via Skype/Facetime, or make a video that you can send! Videos are a great memory and can also help you see where you can improve your performances. Check out a video of my friend and I practising music for our group KeyNote Duo below:
