Today S8, along with several other students in the local Ohio Federation of Music Clubs chapter, performed their federation pieces at an area nursing home in anticipation of their big auditions next week.
S8 went first and did very well. She had one small mistake, but recovered quickly and with a great attitude. To me, that is the right balance. I want her to be stellar and do a fabulous job, but the truth is that we all make mistakes. A few kids got very flustered when they hit a wrong note, and the rest of their piece was ruined as a result. I’m glad she was able to get right back on the horse, so to speak.
