The students have already been asking about the new poster hanging in the studio, the Peryton. This is a medieval mythological creature known as the winged deer.
They live in secret and do not show themselves very often. They do not want to admit their fears and they are sometimes a little stubborn.
They know that strength and bravery can overcome so much. They want to prove they can.
It can be hard to learn new things. Learning to play music takes strength in our brain. No one can see our brains and it is our own secret place. We can create strength by creating many pathways from one side of the brain to the other. These pathways create a strong web that the Peryton can cross back and forth.
Students get to experiment with different practice strategies to build strong “pathways” in their brain, reinforcing the benefits of practicing smarter – not harder.
The Peryton is a fun way to help students grow in grit and growth mindset in their learning journey. This journey encounters many ups and downs and creating a strong growth mindset is a part of what we do at Miss Paula's Music Studio.
