Soloists' Recital Builds Students' Confidence

17 februari 2014

On Sunday, 45 students gathered in the Primary Theatre to perform in this term’s Soloists’ Recital.

The performances ranged from beginners to advanced students, spanning Year 1 to Year 10 and we heard from a range of different instruments: piano, guitar, drums, violin, singing, trumpet.

All of the performances were a very high standard and the audience was thoroughly entertained all morning. The recital was an opportunity for students to practise performing as a soloist in front of an audience. It also gave some children the chance to prepare for their ABRSM exams next term.

We have these all school Soloists’ Recitals every term and it is a great chance to give students the opportunity to perform live.

Miss Rakowski, Head of Primary Music said:

“Performing in front of an audience is an extremely valuable experience, and very different to practising at home. Not only is it nerve-racking as there are a lot of beedy eyes looking at you, but the sound your instrument produces is altered due to the larger performing space. Suddenly a piece that you knew very well can seem unfamiliar due to the different surroundings.

All musicians at some point in their career will need to perform to an audience and giving children this opportunity at such a young age is preparing them for the future. It also builds confidence, not just for playing instruments, but confidence in themselves to overcome a challenge, beat their nerves and develop concentration, persistence and resilience.

Well done to everyone involved – the music department were extremely proud of all the musicians who performed.”
