It’s nearly the end of the school year! This week is the last week of the semester for my students. After our final studio recitals of the year tonight, we’ll all be taking a couple of well-earned weeks off before summer lessons start. Hooray!
This week, I’m celebrating with all of my students who have successfully completed our Mission: Music incentive program (check out this post with more details about the incentive). Nearly all of my elementary and middle school students opted to participate in this year’s incentive. We’ve worked all year to log practice minutes, master technique, ear training and sightreading challenges, learn a variety of repertoire, and even complete a handful of creative projects.
At the beginning of the year I told my students that they’d receive a special surprise if they completed the entire incentive. Here’s a peek at what was waiting for them at lessons this week:
So many of my elementary students get a kick out of pressing the Easy Button that sits by my piano, I thought it was time they all had their own. They’ve been a big hit! In addition to the easy buttons, I presented each student with a Mission: Music Certificate.
The certificates are now available with the rest of the Mission: Music incentive printables on the studio aids page, for any of you who might happen to use the incentive program.
