Proud Parents

A side benefit of a recital is the chance for the proud parent moments. Everyone at this recital will get some certificate or award. This makes it easier for me to brag about each individual child's strengths for one moment in a public place.

The hearts swell, and everyone leaves so high. Here are just a few happy people, and a lovely song for your Sunday.

To grow a little, stretch your true self in awareness of a beautiful thing, whether you are seven or seventy-is there a more lovely way to spend an hour?


  1. I remember how rewarding my studio recitals were for me, and hopefully everyone else, but especially for me. It was my one chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of my labor (and their hard work) as a whole, after having focused on them so much as individuals at their weekly lessons all year. There is really nothing else like it.

  2. I can identify so much with those proud parents. We have just had our children's spring recital and it was magical. To hear them (and see them, too! We've got them on video) playing piano is one of those pleasures hard to measure. Many thanks for those photos.

    Greetings from London.

  3. Encouragement is the road to success :-)
