Recital Burnout (Music Teacher Tip #36)


Are you feeling some recital burnout? Let’s face it… Recitals can be a lot of work, so it’s totally understandable to be burned out from them.

It’s good to recognize when you are burned out because you can then take action. I have definitely gone through times of recital burnout. I’ve noticed that it’s usually during the prep (so much prep) and then when all the work is done that I feel it most. During this time, I am totally exhausted but not one person said thank you or acknowledged any effort I put in it. Thankfully, that doesn’t always happen, but when it does, it can be a HUGE let-down.

In this music teacher tip, I will share 8 tips on how to get through recital burnout and how to help avoid it in the future.
