We had our first piano party yesterday and it was a success! It was a little on the crazy side trying to squeeze 15 people into our little apartment, but I think it was worth it. We played a name game to get to know each other called piano pals. The objective was to meet everyone. We wanted the kids to feel like they are coming to play for their friends at master class and not just strangers.
Everyone went around the room, meeting all the other students. They had to record the name of each person along with an interesting fact about them. When we were done filling in our boxes, we sat down and as each person officially introduced him/herself, we crossed off the names until someone got 4 in a row.
After getting to know each other a little, the big kids paired up with the little kids and played note bingo. Meanwhile, David and I pour the batter on the grill and flipped out the most amazing cinnamon swirl pancakes ever! They are so delicious.
Hopefully the kids had fun and will feel like they really made some pals for piano master classes in the future.
