Last Friday, I posted about my frustration over getting parents onto the recital bandwagon. I wanted to continue the discussion this week by opening up the floor for other teachers to share what they do in the weeks prior to a recital to make sure that parents know what's going on. After reading some of the comments from my last post, I am doing some specific things this week to make sure that parents and students are prepared and have the best recital experience possible.
I'll share those ideas at the end of the week, but for now, I want to hear from you!
What do you do to help make communication more effective? How do you prepare both parents and students for the upcoming recital date?
I'd love to hear feedback from seasoned teachers who may have some tried and true methods to share!
