Pop! An EASY Music Recital Gift!

I’ve been teaching piano lessons for a long time, and I absolutely love it. After I recital, I always like to give my students a little something to let them know how proud I am of them, and to congratulate them for a job well done.  It’s May, and it’s the month of recitals!!  My kids have piano and violin recitals coming up, and I love to give something to them as well, to recognize how hard they’ve worked.  Some of mine are nervous to get on stage, so it’s also a BRAVO for being brave and doing something that’s hard. Whether you are a music teacher, or someone special in your life is a music student, this easy music recital gift is a super fun and simple way to let them know that you’re proud too! It would also be SO cute as a handout after a Primary Program.
