Next after your performance, do you think your audience was moved? How effective were you in reaching them? Were they noticing your music or worrying about whether you'd make it through or if you'd make a mistake? What can you do differently to make more of the music come through? Being a great performer is like being a great chef: we all know the food is awesome because of, and mostly because of the chef. But what we're excited about is the food. Grateful to the chef, but consuming the food. So, you, performer, singer, musician, are the reason the evening rocked, but your music is the thing people are partaking of. Did they get enough?
Studious, knowledgeable musicians and musicians who just play can both become amazing. But usually those who study get there 5xs faster.
