Piano teachers and Conservatoire Students ,what is your experience taking Recital Diploma Exams? This is my first recital exam and I am quite nervous. I am taking my exam in a few months's time. The pieces I am playing for my exam are :- French Suite no5 in G by Bach Mozart PIano SOnata K 331 Schubert Impromtu no 2 in Eflat opus 90 Any experience to share, ideas on how to make it perfect, suggestions on how to practise better ? How much time do you practise in a day when preparing for diploma recital exams? And do you play all the pieces or just fine tune sections on each piece?
