“Music is the sound of feelings.”
A good tip of advice for musicians or aspiring musicians! Whether you’re playing in a competition, at a recital, or simply for fun, the key to a good performance is feelings. Though it sounds cheesy and rather superficial, I have used this method several times in competitions. In the midst of a performance, not many people will pay attention to note accuracy (of course, this is in the case that you do not stop and completely mess up), however, if you play stiffly, your performance will be affected greatly.
Express yourself the next time you play 🙂
