Classical music may have been around since the Medieval era, but it never went out of style. In fact, classical music has never been this appreciated as more professionals achieve their goals of becoming opera performers and more students fulfill their dreams of becoming Julliard prodigies.
There’s also our endless love for the world’s greatest composers like Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Frederic Chopin – whose symphonies are, until now, widely used around the world.
But for those who are getting ready for their first classical music recitals, whether in a piano competition or in a violin competition, nothing beats knowing that classical music itself still embodies what the world’s greatest composers have envisioned for their symphonies – music that speaks from the heart.
That being said, get ready for your first classical music recital by:
Dressing To Represent
Simple, yet elegant – that’s how people dress in classical music recitals. But much like how your music piece should also be, your recital dress should not just be simple and elegant. It should also represent who you are with classical music in hand, as well as what you are capable of with classical music in your heart. It should also represent who the composer is with classical music in his hand, as well as what he’s capable of with classical music in his heart. Overall, it should be simple and elegant, yet majestic and unforgettable for all time.
Listening To Remember
Even if you’ve already familiarized what piece you’ll be playing and memorized what notes you’ll be playing, it never hurts to make sure that your heart is truly in it by listening to remember. Remember every rhythm for each key you are playing. Remember every beat for each string you are playing. Remember every message your piece is looking to impart with other people. Remember that you are one with music, that you are music, that music is you – right there on the stage, along with a sea of heads waiting to hear your voice even without a single word being uttered.
