To each their own on suppliers but I will NEVER use them again because of this. They treated me like C-R-A-P crap. Many of the teachers I know in my area heard what happened and several have stopped using them as well.
Anyway, like I said, to each their own, Im not going to get into or start a debate about it.

Now, back to christmas ideas and music if you please :0)

In the past years I have always given out an ornament with the year on it to students. After doing this for fourteen years though I want to do something different this year.
I thought about a small stocking for each student but what would I fill it with? I have wide range of ages to deal with from age 6 to highschool and a few adults. For adults, how do you recognize them without spending a fortune when it comes to stuff like this? Maybe a gift certificate to a book store or some such thing? Anyone have any ideas?

I order from Prima Music. You get a certain percentage off, and always get free shipping for any order of $100.00 or more. I know many teachers who have ordered from Patti and just rave about them. Has anyone checked out the pianovision.com site? It's relatively new, and they are running a special of 25%off all music and free shipping for any orders $50.00 or more. I ordered some reference books from them and can't wait to get them.

Kelly, there should be a thread about gifts in the Archives. I remember people had some interesting suggestions, but I can't remember right now what they were. I have always thought the book marks that hold pencils would be a nice useful gift. I think you can find them in both Friendship House and Music in Motion. They run a little over $1 a piece with an order of 10 or more. That will probably be my gift to my students this year.

For adults' little holiday gifts I might suggest nice bookmarks or Seattle chocolate bars (expresso flavor), found at the top of every 3rd the checkout counter at Target. Which reminds me, it's time for my nightly bar.......

I'll have to check those out. It would be something unique and used by them. :o)
I'm not opposed to spending money but I want it to be on something they can keep - not eat in three bites and its gone. Those bookmarks sound like a good idea as all my kids like to read... alot!

The bookmark clips over pages so I was thinking of marking places in their music and then having a pencil right there in case they need it. Of course, it could be used for reading books too.

If you truly would like some new ideas when you ask for them here, then don't diss the hands that take the time to feed you. ;\) Just a suggestion.....

I looked up those bookmarks in Friendship House on P.55 of the back to school catalog. Now that I look at them, I am not sure they clip on. The clip is to hold the pencil I guess. Not sure. On that page, they also have jumbo paper clips with music designs. A bag of 6 clips cost 5.95. No pencil attachment though.

I agree with playsteinway. Sheetmusicplus is a great online sheet music store.
