There have been two really bad days in my musical life thus far.
One was when I got a III rating in a piano festival when I was about 15. (III means “good” but it’s the worst rating there is…so therefore, bad)
And the other one was when I was judged the Overall Winner at my university’s competition among all the wind players, string players, pianists, and singers. You might be surprised that this was one of my worst days, but I will explain.
