If there’s something I’ve learned about recital programs over the past twenty-two years of owning a studio, it’s that a recital program can be so much MORE than a guide to the show! It can highlight your students’ achievements, congratulate them on an awesome season, display their photos, celebrate the community around your studio, and support other businesses in the neighborhood. It can also serve as a special memento, just like a school yearbook, that commemorates the whole studio’s accomplishments for the year.
The recital program at my studio has grown from a dozen cobbled-together pages in our first year to a sleek professional publication. Our team puts hours upon hours each season into its design and organization to make it a real WOW for our studio families. Even now that the digital era is here, our recital program is still considered by our families to be a cherished keepsake.
Your recital program serves that same purpose as a keepsake, whether you realize it or not! With that in mind, I wanted to share some of the ideas that have made our recital program a rousing success. Whether your current recital program is a simple series of photocopies or a magazine-style book, these ideas are intended to make you think about where you can make improvements, making your program truly Worthy Of Words!
