Easter Egg Performance Preparation

Easter Egg Performance Preparation

It’s recital time here. On the week before a performance, I always record the students so we can play it back and evaluate. The trick is to make this fun instead of intimidating, so we added in a bit of art.

What You Need:

  • Several Easter egg coloring pages, such as these, these, or these.
    • I used the ones with 9 eggs to a page, but anything will work.
    • I also specifically got some of the ones with blank eggs because some kids prefer to color, some prefer to draw.
  • Colored pencils or crayons
  • Recording device (I just use my phone)

Setup:

  • Label the top of each coloring page with Take 1, Take 2, or Take 3. I did one coloring page and one blank egg page for each of the three takes.

What to Do:

  • Record the student playing their piece two or three times.
  • Play back the first take. Discuss what went well and what could use improvement. You could use the Pre-Recital Self Assessment for this, but it’s optional.
  • Repeat for the second and third takes.
  • Determine which recording was the best. The student can then decorate one of the eggs on the page labeled for that take.
