Mistakes in Music Are Okay too!

Grace Note Music Studio is located in Wilmington, NC, and the owner Elaine is always looking for ways to motivate her students! When she saw Beautiful Oops! just prior to giving her recital last year, she knew that it would be just the thing to ease any performance anxiety her students had, and would make the recital a happy and fun experience for them. It certainly did the trick—even her 80 year-old adult student performed during the recital. She had been very apprehensive about performing, but she did a super job! Elaine keeps the poster up in her studio and refers to it often during her student’s lesson time. Prior to any performance, Elaine does many Beautiful Oops! activities, so that her students don’t have to worry so much about making mistakes and they can concentrate on having fun playing their pieces!
