Maybe you want to relax and don't touch an instrument for a couple of weeks because it was a hard work after all. Or maybe you want to boast about it to all of your friends because it went so well and you never played so great in your entire life. Or perhaps you want to hide and never play again because it felt so embarrassing with obvious mistakes even in easy places.
That's one view - a weekend warrior's view. A view of the professional is much different.
For a pro, the pieces he is afraid of the most are the ones he should be playing. For a pro this recital, church service or competition wasn't all that special, challenging or embarrassing after all.
Because a pro is always a pro. Sick or healthy, rested or exhausted, sad or joyful, ready or not.
Challenges aren't something to hide from. Challenges are something to seek out. Start preparing for your next event today.
