Day 45, Conviction

Practice: 2+, Rehearsal: 1.5, Concert: 1 (about an hour of music).  Could have played more but chose to save my energy for an audition tomorrow morning.

One of the interesting things that came up in studio class today was “what does it take to be able to play something cold?”  It reminded me about the power of imagination.  If you hold a clear image in your mind of exactly what you want, how could you play anything else?  Commit to this image and almost nothing can stop you.  A good thing to remember for daily performances and as part of the bigger picture.  Decide what you want.  The only bad music is indecisive music.
