How Can a Wrong Note Be Perfect?
Is pianistic perfectionism healthy or not? Should we avoid mistakes or embrace them? Does the computer model (“always be careful to input accurate data”) make sense for us? Or are we athletes of a kind, training our bodies to perform special skills, who thus need to welcome honest mistakes in order to succeed? This presentation – inspiring, candid, sensible – questions much of the “conventional wisdom” about music lessons, and has been enthusiastically received at conventions and meetings across the U.S. and in Europe, Asia and South America.
