On any given day, a performer can really nail a piece or they can botch it. Three different judges will give three different scores on the same performance. It feels good to win, but we shouldn’t get caught up in “the score.” Don’t let your ego get the best of you if you did well; don’t beat yourself up if you didn’t. Did you walk in that room and play the best that you could play on that day? Did you learn something in the process of preparing for a performance? Did it give you a sense of accomplishment? Will it help you prepare for the next level of learning? That’s all that really matters. As parents and as music instructors, these are the values we should strive to teach our students.
