being a good musician isn't all about being able to play all the correct notes.

it isn't about fame

it isn't about how many cds you've recorded

it isn't about how good a conductor you are

it isn't about how many tours you've gone on

it isn't about the amount of musical knowledge you have

it isn't about receiving an mep scholarship

it isn't about receiving an atcl certificate

it isn't about studying music at university

it isn't about winning many competitions

there are so many things being a musician really isn't about.

what's most important about a good musician is the heart.

the ability to touch others lives through music

the dedication

it doesn't matter if you only touch a handful of lives

or give an imperfect performance

it is about the relationships built. the inspiration shared.

i don't know if music is eternal. but one thing's for sure, the things that are not seen, like the human soul, and relationships are.

some of the things you see above under what being a good musician isnt about are what my heart desires. but after today, it all doesn't matter anymore. because i have found my purpose for my music.

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." - matthew 6:33
