9 out of 10 musicians
suffer from stage fright.

Did you know that, in many cases,
stage fright is learned
and results from a pedagogical error?

Many times, teachers suffer from it and
we do not have the tools to address it and,
consequently, we transmit it.

The symptoms of this unpleasure can be
physical, mental and emotional.

“The magic of butterflies” is a valuable tool
to address the topic in the family, school,
conservatory, classroom and wherever you like!

When writing “The Magic of Butterflies“, I understood that literature could connect perfectly with my most playful side and with my imagination, recreating moments that I have lived together with music.

This, and my vocation to help artists, resulted in a useful and didactic story that helps to achieve what many believe to be impossible: overcoming stage fright.

I am Ayelén Correa, teacher, pianist and specialist in Stage Fright and Emotional Interpretation.

My mission is to help music professionals overcome stage fright, transforming that feeling into full enjoyment. I am convinced that literature and music are the perfec combination for children, teenagers and adults to learn to enjoy their art and to share it with others on stage.

For this reason, I develop playful and didactic tools applicable to everyday life, which generate the appropriate space to address the issues involved in the artistic exhibition.

How it came about

A night of pandemic where I found myself isolated in a room alone, with the only resource of artistic expression: a computer.

"Making music is like when we eat a chocolate that we like so much, but so much that after we eat it, we want to share it with others. But it's never the other way around. It all starts with you first.”

No matter what age or stage of artistic life you are in, The Magic of Butterflies will help you learn to connect with the sense of fulfillment and pleasure that comes from enjoying your art.

My purpose as a professional, my training as a specialist and my vocation to help are combined in this story that will not provide you with a magic solution, but will provide you with tools to discover that the possibility of overcoming stage fright is within everyone s reach.
