Tomorrow is the big day for a whole lot of students in the Charlotte area. They’ve spent months preparing to play for the National Federation of Music Clubs Festival. What do they need to remember for the big day?
1. Take your music! Yes, it is memorized. However, the judges need it. You cannot play if your music is not there.
2. Dress nicely. You are representing yourself and your teacher.
3. Give yourself plenty of time to find parking and the correct building. Arrive and be ready to play 15 minutes early. This will give you time to take a few deep breaths, go to the bathroom, and get some water.
4. Learn something. Whether you have a good performance, a bad performance, or something in between. Pay attention and learn something from the experience.
