How to Prepare Your Child for a Brilliant Performance

Music lessons are not a truly complete package without a recital or performance of some kind to show all the hard work, dedication to practice, and musical learnings -

Year-End Recitals...
Winter Recitals...
Masterclasses...
Auditions...
Examinations...
Competitions...
Festivals...
Cafe Performances...

Whether it be formal or casual, the student almost always feels a sense of nervousness. What can we do as teachers, and parents, to help the child prepare for a wonderful experience "on stage"?

I came across this blog post: How to Prepare Your Child for a Brilliant Performance, and it covers all aspects of the time leading up to the performance (and how to use it wisely), the actual performance day, and links to what's going on in the brain. I found it to be intriguing, helpful, and interesting.
