Recital Compliment Cards
This year we added a new thing to our Performance classes: Recital Compliment Cards. The audience members should write down one thing on which they would like to compliment the performer. Something about:
- Posture and artistry at the piano
- Energy or feeling
- Technique like hand shape
- How the piece affects positively them
- Anything positive!
Each student and their parent writes their compliments on one piece of paper. They write the performer's name and their compliments. After the performance classes, I cut the papers and separate all compliments belonging to each student, and during the next individual lesson give each of my students their compliments. They paste them into their recital book. The compliments are amazing
This is how the compliments looked after the last performance class.
