Casual Recital Certificate

Casual Recital Certificate

Have you ever had certificates to pass out to everyone in your recital except for that one little student who just started taking lessons? Here is something you can pass out to him or to all of your students.  I designed this in a casual style, but I also made one that is more formal, and I will post that in a few days. So hang on if casual certificates are not your style!

We all know that students get a lot of certificates and awards nowadays.  Have you ever wondered what happens to all of it?  I visited one of my students a few years ago  and he proudly showed off a scrapbook he made with everything he had ever received from me carefully preserved. I was so touched, and it certainly makes the time and effort I put forth to make this material all worthwhile!

Of course,  your comments and emails are encouraging, too, and I very much appreciate them. Thank you!

    Hi Susan, Thank you for such a great idea! I wonder if you could send me this certificate in higher resolution as when i printed this it’s blurry. Really appreciate it.

      Be sure you click on the link that takes you to my website so you can print the PDF version. Do not click on the jpg graphic and try to print that, as it is only for viewing.

    I love the “Fun” look of this one. It should be a hit with younger students.

    I love the Recital Certificate but your pdf files always print off center on my paper. Am I the only one that has that problem?

    • susanparadis

      Check the “Scaling” on the PDF printer settings. It should be set to “None”.

    I’m glad that seeing the scrapbook gave you the feeling that your time and effort is worthwhile because it definitely is! If each of us sent you an email every time we benefit from you efforts, we’d shut down the web!!! Thanks for all that you do.

    I like the certificate and may use it, but isn’t successful spelled with just one ‘l’ on the end? Could that be corrected and posted again? Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

      You are so right, and thanks for telling me that. As some of you know, I have a lot of trouble proof reading! It’s fixed now.

    Sorry, I left out what sparked all this: this boy’s Mom, also a choir teacher at the same high school performing arts program, was watching a home video of her son playing the piano and thought his duet partner looked like my son. So she asked him at school, and he came home to ask me. The rest is history. So Susan, keep making those certificates!

      Thanks, Ivea.
      If you downloaded the first version, be sure to delete it and get the one with the correct spelling!

    Susan, both my boys were in piano for years and I started a binder for each of them, placing all their recital and concert programs, certificates and awards in them. Fast forward about 10 years. My younger son is at a high school performing arts program. This is his second year. He came home one day and asked me if he had played a piano duet with his band teacher’s son, also in the same program, but a year older. I didn’t think so. We went to check through his binder. Lo and behold, he did play with that young man, a duet called Razzle Dazzle, when they were 7 and 6, also competed in a music festival, and had the SAME teacher! Talk about coincidence. Hurray for keeping the documents! I knew there’s a purpose other than bragging rights. LOL.

      A binder is a great idea! I never thought of that. I guess you can use sheet protectors to slide certificates and programs into it.
