It is recommended that you read each story and become familiar with it so you can share highlights of the story at your awards ceremony before presenting the certificate to a student. Note that each story can be applicable to band, choir, orchestra or any music ensemble. The stories are for the director only and not intended to be handed out to the student

To personalize the certificates, simply edit the name text box and you are ready to go! The font used is Monotype Corsiva. If you would like to use a different font (or font size), simply type the student name on a Microsoft word document (using your desired font/font size) and then copy/paste it onto the PDF document in the name section. Another easy option is to print and handwrite all text (name, date, director signature)

We recommend printing the black and white certificates on colored cardstock for colorful, yet ink-friendly certificates. If you choose to print colored certificates, we recommend printing in “high quality” for best results. White cardstock is recommended for the colored certificates.

Some positive feedback from happy customers who have purchased items from our store:

“So much fun and WAY better than a boring worksheet exam! My kids love that they can move around during our end-of-semester review. The card designs are great. Can't wait to try all the other uses for them too! Thanks for a great idea to keep me sane and save me time these last few weeks of school! :)”

“Used this with my groups right before winter break- great review, and something I could easily use for a sub plan as well.”
