Every year we organise a student concert, and it usually occurs on the third or last week of January (we want to avoid organising the concert too close to both the western New Year and the Chinese New Year holidays).
Organising a student concert is a big project. Every time we need to find a venue suitable and available for the desirable capacity and time, and on top of that arranging everything for the actual concert. It can be exhausting yet at the same time exciting.
Parents and students might wonder, why is there a student concert (and music gathering)? What is the purpose of performing in front of a bigger audience?
It is crucial for students, especially young kids, to play for others. To go on stage and perform in front of an audience can be scary and daunting, and the same goes for being MCs and introducing other performers on stage, but if you let the children get used to it as early as possible, I can assure you that they actually find it very fun to do. For example, the first time I asked the kids to be MCs, some of them were quite reluctant to do so, because they had never done it and were afraid of trying, not sure how the experience would be like. But they did and they loved it! So the next time I did not even have to ask them, in fact, they asked me to give them the opportunities to be the MCs!  To be able to be on stage and perform and talk needs courage and confidence, and we want to instil and develop that quality in our children by giving them opportunities and supporting them to do so.
The students who have done more public performances are those who eventually develop a higher level of self-confidence and personal charisma , whether it be in their piano performance or presentation skills. They learn to communicate with others more effectively through their playing and speech, and what better way to sharpen such skills than actually doing them and getting better at them on a glorious stage?

每年我們都舉行學生音樂會 (為了避免接近兩個西方新年和中國春節假期通常在一月第三個或最後一周舉行)。 

籌備學生音樂會是個大工程。每次我們需要找到一個提供理想的地點,座位容量和時間合適的場地,並安排一切音樂會實際的實務學生人數,場地費用開資,影音安排,音樂節目編排,場刋設計編印等等。雖然很多工夫 (從來沒有賺錢,只有自己補錢),但是很值得。

家長和學生可能會問,為什麼要參加學生音樂會(與音樂聚會)?在眾多的觀眾面前表演的目的是什麼? 在舞台上和觀眾面前表演可以很可怕,令人望而生畏,,但如果你讓年幼的孩子們習慣了趁早就好,我可以向你保證他們其實覺得這可以是一件很有趣的事情。例如,第一次我請年幼的學生做司儀,有一些小朋友因為很怕羞,從來沒有做過,害怕嘗試又不知道會發生什麼事,所以不太願意這樣做。但做了這一次後,他們覺得好好玩!因此,下一次我甚至沒有問他們,他們便自己向我要求給他們機會再做一次MC!為了孩子能夠在舞台上有勇氣和信心,我們必須給他們灌輸正面的知識、給他們機會,並支持他們這樣做,好讓他們充分發揮發展自己的才能才藝,無論是在鋼琴演奏和表達能力上,公眾表演和演講令學生發揮自信,令個人魅力更上一層樓。通過自己的演奏和講話小孩子學會了與他人更有效地溝通。有什麼方式比實際站在一個輝煌的舞台上來磨礪這樣的技能更好呢?
