A few months back, my friend Michelle Erfurt wrote a blog post about framed motivators. I tucked this idea away in the back of my brain, and came back to it when it came time to start decorating my new studio.
I knew I wanted some frame motivators sitting right on top of my piano, because that way not only would I see them regularly, but so would my students. The phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On” came to mind immediately, but I wanted it to relate specifically to music.
I was excited to come across prints on Etsy displaying the phrases above, but I needed smaller versions to fit the 4×6 frames I’d already purchased. So I made my own DIY versions, had them printed as glossy photos at Walgreens, put them in the frames atop my piano, and voila:
Truthfully, there are times during lessons and/or music therapy sessions where these come in very handy — for both my students and I. So Michelle, on behalf of the entire Music Therapy Connections studio, thanks for the inspiration!
