CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Diane’s Music Studio students performed in their recital Sunday but it wasn’t a typical recital. They participated in a virtual recital using the Zoom platform to maintain social distancing.

“I’m overwhelmed with how well they have done with this,” Diane’s Music Studio Music Director Diane Frame said.

She said she’s moved her lessons to Zoom since COVID-19 restrictions required it but she’s glad she’s been able to see her students and do what she loves.

“Being able to click on everyday and have a lesson with my kids and adults too and have that personal connection and to even be able to see the parents there, it’s just so wonderful to have that close feeling,” Frame said. “I didn’t have to lose that.”

She also said music is a way to temporarily escape from the tough reality everyone faces during the coronavirus crisis.

“Music is something that goes so deep. It comes from the soul and it speaks better than words can speak, I believe. And I love being able to give this platform, an opportunity, for children to build their self-esteem,” Frame said.

Diane’s Music Studio hosted three separate virtual recitals Sunday. Each had six to eight students perform and lasted about 40 minutes.
