A Walk on the Wild Side- Spring Recital

This year our studio theme was "A Walk on the Wild Side" a Piano Safari. Students worked hard on moving on the game board passing their safari animals. For every day they practiced they were able to move a space on the board. Every once in a while I might have given some bonus spaces. When they passed an animal they would accomplish a lab activity.

Keeping in line with our theme this year, students played animal pieces and wrote a poem that represented their animal. Their poem was printed in the recital program. I had also written several poems that would introduce that group of animals that students were representing before they performed.

Before the recital, students met for a rehearsal to go through the ins and outs of what they should do at the recital...


Recital Day! Everyone did great!

Can't have a recital without a PARTY!

We watched IMAX: Born to be Wild (an animal safari documentary), ate popcorn, played some games and ate yummy animal safari cupcakes.
