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:
- 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.”

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!
