You should get a few lessons from her without paying and then "forget" that you fired her.

Yeah, that's gonna be hard to pull of. But if you work hard and don't screw off, you could probably do it.

ouch...that sucks...well good luck

Just play chopsticks for 5 pages..

Practice like a motherfucker, and if you screw up on the day, just shit your pants and start throwing it at the audience. Say you got nervous and reverted to a simian state. It worked for Bush.

haha nice! i liked the george bush joke!

or get smashed beforehand...maybe you'll play amazingly! Peter Griffin-style

wait till the recital, don't show up, and when she asks, tell her you forgot to tell her u can't make it! :)

A recital for a music school in front of 300 people is small OP. And five pages of grand staff music is essentially 2 1/2 pages. Try 4 pages of single staff music at a publicly presented Canadian Premier of a famous composer's piece in a sold out concert hall seating 1000+. Please OP, grow a pair and play the damn concert. If you mess up then so be it. Music is a human creation and therefore cannot be perfect all the time.

Stereotypes: eef u Asiiian yoo cain doo eet! No pyobwem! Eet easy!! (yes, spelling is on purpose) (no offense to Asians)

Op, y dont u say no?

Oh no! I had a music teacher once do that to me, only I had to play guitar & sing :/

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.. Show it anyway

Do you even play piano? Or music in general? You don't cram for a recital.

Well, you can. I mean, from experience, if this person is as good as their teacher seems to think, it's not that hard to learn 5 pages. If you don't have to memorize, it's a piece of cake. Hell, I learned a 200 page musical in a week and a half and I'm only slightly above mediocre. Memorizing.. well, look for patterns. 5 pages, even if it's Bach or Rachmaninoff are not that bad.

Memorizing the notes is different than memorizing the muscle memory, of course. That takes time even with the music. But it certainly can be done! :)

Ouch, but you'll do fine xD

good luck!!! :)

Ooh! Tough going - think of it as a challenge! Clearly you are talented though, otherwise your tutor would not have left it until the last minute to have told you. All the best for it though, I know how you feel! Bon chance!

No he shouldn't. It's as #6 said, he obviously has the talent. I learned a four page piece on the piano in a weekend. This is totally doable.

I predict it will be like the first 15 seconds of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_17xvp4_8hY

You need to get yourself a skilled friend and blind the audience somehow. . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEZUtq2QHIY

You can always have keyboard cat play you off
