Becca, do you mean that you as an adult student are playing a piece on your teacher's student recital? With five/ten/fifteen other students? Or are you playing an entire recital yourself?
In either case, I'm not sure why you feel compelled to send a thank-you and gift to your teacher. It's a nice gesture, but I'm not sure why you feel the need. Is it about Christmas, or a thank-you for getting you through a first recital? Or both?
Hi Peter! Yes I am a student in the recital with about 44 other students. I don't think I've ever been asked why I want to thank someone! LOL It's a thank you not Christmas. I wasn't sure if it being so close to Christmas if that factored in or not. It's my first one! I have no idea. LOL I want to thank him for all his hard work for us students and for his patience and help as my teacher. I can't even imagine putting on a recital for all the students nevermind the daily work he puts into all of us. I appreciate what he's doing for us and many music teachers don't put on recitals at all. (He does two recitals plus a music festival plus plays for the public. He teaches guitar, singing and piano in case your wondering.) I'm also glad that I don't get to opt out just because I'm an adult!
Thank you guys for your replies! I like the idea of a card signed by all of us and maybe a box of chocolates or something simple. I can't afford much.
Chasing Rainbows: may you get nicely thanked once again.
