music mistake

Jon Reid picked up this quote up from his daughter's piano teacher but it runs much deeper than the direct music application.
It's not that you made a mistake; mistakes happen. But when you made the mistake, you became flustered. For the next few measures, all the notes were right but the music was gone. Get beyond the mistake. Music is not like painting. In painting, if you make a mistake, it's there forever. But in music, if you make a mistake, we forget about it because we are looking forward to what is coming next.
Well I liked it ... seems like it could make a good sermon.

Hey, if you ever use the quote, let me know and I'll share it with the piano teacher. :-)
