My Facebook firend, Mario Ajero, just posted this: Compare how many times you played it right in the practice room to the amount of times you played it wrong, and you'll understand why you didn't perform admirably. #yaypiano
My college prof said this many times: You earn a good performance in the practice room. (I'm paraphrasing.)
Mario's way of expressing it sure is neat and succinct, and a great thought for me to remember, as well as all of my students. I've tried preaching this to my students before, but now I have a perfect way of expressing it. Thanks Mario!
