Recitals: Pictures

by | Apr 21, 2016 | Recitals | 0 comments


Yes, I love pictures and taking lots of pictures of my students.  I love being able to look back on all of the years of recitals and see  how much they’ve grown. In addition to the sentimental value, pictures can be so much more!

Here’s how…


Here are some FaceBook posts that parents posted that studio parents tagged me in.  I seriously love this job and we are creating lasting memories with students and families.  I didn’t ask for these pictures to be posted, yet are better than paid advertising! Take a look…

Use pictures of your students and your events (with parent permission) to create a buzz around your studio.  Post pictures on FaceBook (again, with permission) then tag your piano parents and add the location of your studio.  People who are friends with your piano parents on FaceBook are sure to see photos of their kids having fun at your event!

For all of the details about photo and video releases, be sure to read Wendy Stevens post about this topic.

Silly pictures…



Costume pictures…



One last picture idea…  

Invite a special guest to take pictures with your students after the recital…guess who?!



You get the idea.  The more pictures you post, the more people who are likely to see what you have going on in your studio, the more people will be interested from taking from the teacher who puts on exciting events that are memorable and fun!



In addition to advertising, recital pictures can make a great gift.  Whether it’s a simple framed picture or personalized photo album filled with pictures, however you want to present it…photos are a great gift for your students.  Here I found a treble clef picture holder and gave it to students as their Christmas gift along with a picture from a recital and  some Christmas themed boxed candy.


Here, I used some inexpensive photo albums, changed the cover with sheet music scrapbook paper, and personalized using black and gold stickers.

Take time to document all of the hard work you have put into your event.  It will be wonderful to look back on all of the memories over the years and you may even get some new students from it!
