Prize table - probably the highlight for my students as they were able to spend the music money that they worked hard to earn all year. I am grateful for the parents and older students that volunteered to run the prize table and survived the stampede of students...re-thinking the structure for next year, perhaps more store-like with a couple shopping tables and a check out table?
Snacks - did some of the audience come for the promise of some food? Possibly, but they sure enjoyed the whole recital too.
Awards - I do awards at the end of the year to recognize the hard work of a few students. You won't see any participation trophies coming out of my studio, if you want to compete for an award you have to come out top.
Favorite things poster - I had my students write their favorite thing about piano lessons this year on a poster
I had a few more pictures to add, unfortunately my phone did something disastrous and I lost the pictures I wanted to use.
