Having Practice Recitals are so much fun! For the child, they love to share what they're doing and like to hear that applause. For the parent, you can't help but smile and glow when your child is enjoying something.
These Practice Recitals will need an audience of course! Please invite all of your favorite dolls/cars and toy animals. If family is near by, they are of course special guests. Have an "official" stage area and follow all the procedures of a "true" recital. Walking out on stage to applause, a beautiful bow with a smile, take time to prepare oneself, play beautifully, and bow with a smile to thunderous applause.
The Practice Recital can consist of one piece, or many more. The idea is that there will be no interruption and anything that is given is lovingly received.
