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
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.
