Abstract

Performance is vital to a musician and educator because through understanding and analysis of problems the teacher can better help his students. The specific problems for this performer and for this recital were: (1) The interpretation of the music according to the style intended by the composer, and (2) The mastery of the technic needed to overcome difficult passages.

The purpose of the musician was to prepare a recital which would demonstrate tone quality, control, phrasing, musicianship, and confidence in performance. The basic assumption was that the teacher-musician needs to demonstrate these qualities to enable him to more effectively work with his students.
