Christmas Piano Recital Preparation

Happy Thursday, friends! My piano students are having a Christmas recital in November (I know, that's SO early, but you know how it is when the holiday events start filing up the calendar!). They've been working diligently on their solos since September, and I have loved every minute of spending all of our time these past several weeks on Christmas music. The kids have been ecstatic to work solely on Christmas music, which is a HUGE change of pace for them, and for me too! 

My piano recital to-do list is getting shorter and shorter, and that's fantastic since there are only a few more days until the recital!

As I continue working through my piano recital to-do list, today I'm working on preparing my students' certificates and choosing a photo backdrop to order, and I wanted to share with you an easy way to put together a beautiful and cohesive look for your Christmas recital. (I'll let you know how the ordering of the photo backdrop goes in another post.)

The certificates are from this Recital Kit, which can be used for any instrument. The kit includes invitation templates, portrait recital program templates, landscape recital program templates, and templates for certificates. 

The certificates are so simple to prepare! They are in a PowerPoint document, and all I have to do is insert text boxes and type! They're a beautiful rustic Christmas theme this year, and they come in five colors: green, red, gray, blue, and brown. They have a lovely rustic wood background, and the winter landscape decorating them is all white, as is the text. Here's an example with a fake name and date on it, to protect the privacy of my students: 

Here are some more sample completed pages from this kit.

Each item within the kit comes in all five colors, so there are a ton of options to choose from! You could do an all red recital one year, an all green one the next, or you can use all five colors the same year!
