Four score and seven years ago today,...


hmmm.. lets see.. you could tell them the piano is 1/2 step off pitch and so everyone will need to transpose his or her work accordingly...

for 60 students, you have to teach 6.5 - 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, either half hour class or 1 hour class.

60 Students sounds like an awful lot for one recital. \:D You are brave! \:D Have you thought of dividing the recital into two so that it's not so lengthy for your students and parents? Little ones have difficulty sitting longer than 30-40 min.

Here's what I cover in my recitals before students play:

Welcome
Thanks for the support (parents and recital facility)
upcoming events
a reminder of concert ettiquette (no applause between pieces if a student plays more than one, bowing, etc.)
cell phones and pagers turned off

Then I turn the time over to the students who follow the printed program. The parents and relatives are there to here their little darlings, not me telling stories \:D \:D
