I had a piano recital for my students last week. This was the first recital I've ever held, and it turned out surprisingly well. They played a mixture of "regular" songs and Christmas songs. Since I only have 5 students right now, everyone got to play 3 songs and the program was still under 30 minutes.
All the students practiced hard and did a great job on their songs.
I had sisters play a duet. It reminded me of playing duets with my sister.
There was a mother daughter duet too.
Both my boy students took it very seriously. They memorized a song, they had great form while playing and bowed very precisely when finished. I loved it.
I'm glad we had a lot of people in the audience so the students had someone to perform for, and there was always a big applause. Afterwards, we had some cookies and punch, which was a big hit with all the young children spectators.
Dallin and his friend from preschool snuck away from the refreshment room to play in their own recital.
I'm really proud of all my students and how hard they've worked this year.
