Have you calculated how much your recital costs you each year? Are there any costs you can cut for next year?
The venue is the biggest expense for many recitals. You may also have decorations, food or other extra touches. Some of these may be extremely important to you, and I am not telling you to cut those!
But maybe when you make a list, some of them don’t actually really matter to you or your students. Set a reminder for yourself not to make those purchases next time if they didn’t pay off.
