I know this is off topic, but the holidays are getting close and I would like to give my teacher a present (just a thought) and felt that this would be the best place for this post - I'd appreciate any ideas from the experts. Thanks. \:\)

I'm no expert, but I think what gift you give depends on how close you are to your teacher. How close are you? With that said, and that asked...Earplugs would be a funny, self-deprecatory gag gift. ;\)

Hi Frank,

She's been my teacher for about 4 1/2 -5 years, it's the thought that counts. I got a kick out of ear-plugs. Have to give that some thought.

Thanks.

My piano teacher and his wife mean a great deal to our family. I spend about $30.00 on a gift certificate to a restaurant or music store, or I put that amount in a card.

My students vary greatly, and some don't give me any gift at all. I especially appreciate the ones who give me a card with cash! Ha!

I think many music teachers would appreciate a gift certificate from a good sheet music store. Other than that, I think many teachers would use gift certifcates from places like amazon.com. Or find out about their non-musical interests.

I give my teachers a gift. My clarinet teacher has told me alcohol is always safe, his favorite clarinetists, and that he generally likes 20th century clarinet music. My piano teacher, I typically get him a piece (or collection of pieces) that he wants. This year it's Joplin's complete rags. (which I have already ordered from sheetmusicplus.com)

I think a recording of your best and worst playing. Then your teacher can play it to his or her friends and brag about what a difference has been made. And it is a lasting reminder of you!
