    Do you have your students wear costumes for Halloween recitals? We’d love to hear about your clever ideas for making the recitals fun?

    I love to have the students dress up for the recital. For the older students, they can just wear a hat or use a prop if they don’t want to have the full costume. One year I had a special “bubbly” punch with dry ice fog – talk about dramatic! I’m looking for new ideas this year for something unique to do for the recital? Maybe a dramatic duet for the closer? Any suggestions?
