Once you have trained and properly learned the piano, then next come the concerts and recitals. These are fun because they are where the parents get to see the results of the hard work and practice. They get to see that it is paying off. Also for adult students, this is a chance to show off what they have learned to their friends and family.
Recitals consist of several students so your family can also meet and watch other students and compare them to their child to see what they will be like when they become more advanced. Overall it is a great experience for both students and their family and friends.
