Just added: Performing at the Piano Worksheet

Just added: a new free, printable worksheet called:

>  Performing at the Piano Worksheet

Just in time for the spring recital season, this fill-in-the-blank worksheet is intended to help prepare students for an upcoming recital or other performance by discussing stage presence and performance etiquette.

Terms/concepts covered in the worksheet:

  • Memorizing
  • Applause
  • Bowing
  • Checking the bench
  • and more.

This worksheet can either be sent home with students, completed one-on-one with the student during the lesson, or — my favorite — done as a group as a studio class or group lesson.   It would be fun to complete this worksheet as a group just before a practice run-through of a recital.

To download, visit the Printables > Worksheets page and scroll down to the P’s for “Performing at the Piano worksheet.”

Your turn!  Share your ideas for preparing students for recitals in the comments!

    Happy to have stumbled across your site- thank you so much for sharing. I have been teaching for a long time and needed some “new blood”! With two special needs sons and an office job as well as my piano lessons, I do not have as much time or energy as I would like to generate materials for my lessons, so I really appreciate your generosity. I love the recital prep sheet.
    One thing I do often is to record the pupils (with permission) when they think they are “finished” or “done” with a piece. This is useful on two levels, helping them to identify the strengths and weaknesses existing..and putting their performance under some pressure to see how confident/prepared they are for performance.
    Thank you again and all the very best!

      Glad you found us! I agree — recording is a wonderful way to help prepare students for a performance!
