Student Post- How I Overcame Challenges with Rhythm

Hi my name is Olivia,

Not that long ago I had trouble with rhythm.  I got really mad when I couldn't do it.  But now what calms me down is I just take a break for 10 or 5 minutes and then I try again.  If I got mad again I would take a break for 15 or 20 minutes at that point I didn't get mad anymore.  Thanks for reading my letter.

Olivia was having trouble with rhythm and while I suggested that when she got super frustrated she take a small break and come back to her piece, what really worked for her is to count out loud with a metronome and then count and clap with the metronome.
