Are you looking for a clever way to share what happens in your music room with your parents?

If so, consider hosting an “informance!” An informance is similar to a performance. Instead of inviting parents to see their children perform a concert, invite them to come watch a rehearsal or sit in for a normal “every day” class. I suggest opening your classroom for one week (or one day) and invite parents to attend class with their child. (Note, please follow your school’s rules for visitors). Give them a copy of your lesson plan (with standards) and let them watch you work your magic! Better yet, make them participate.

I have done this twice and two different schools and my parents and students loved it!

Have you ever done and informace? How did the parents react?
