Perform in your recital clothes (especially shoes!)
One run-through without stopping for a single mistake
Can you start in the middle of your piece?
Can you play the very last measure?
Fasten hair away from the right side of your face
Look as sophisticated as possible. No shorts, sweats or ripped jeans, please.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE
Bring your music -- even if you are playing from memory
AT THE RECITAL
Mini arm swings and foot flaps
Wash your hands and try the piano
