I held off posting about our CD project because it was a surprise gift for parents this past Christmas, but then forgot to post it on the blog! Since October my students were practicing pieces to perfection in order to record them. Students recorded their Halloween party song, Fall at the Mall song, old favorite songs they had performed before, and of course several favorite Christmas songs. Some students had upwards of 7 or 8 recorded pieces!
Each student had their own playlist so I could burn the CD. Then, at the Pizza Party Rehearsal, we constructed the Christmas cards that served as the CD holder and I took their photos for the CD label. Our project was a wonderful “audio memory” of each child’s progress in piano lessons. It was a lot of work, but we may just do it again next year!
