Our first mini-recital of the year was held last night! Students had the opportunity to play two pieces each. We also played a number of musical games.
To start off our concert, we started with musical charades. Students had to act out a symbol, then the rest of us would try and guess what symbol it was.
After that came the performance portion of our concert. Students got to perform two pieces each, which we did live.
After, we did a ‘silly’ performance each – we practiced making a big, silly mistake and continuing on with our performance! This is really good practice as it gets students used to the performance mindset of knowing that you can’t stop in a performance, even if things go a little awry.
Lastly, we played a Halloween-themed game – the Bats and Cats note game. Students enjoyed getting the chance to hang out and play a musical game together. It is a great opportunity for students to feel a part of the studio community even when they can’t see each other in person!
