Hi everyone, i went to belding today and performed, i got.....a 1! I squeaked quite badly on a few notes (everything in my piece was in the higher register)I'm not happy with my performance, i was so nervous i could barely play. But even at my worst, i got a 1, wierd huh?
The judges usually give a lot of "1's" at local S & E contests. It's quite difficult for most people to play a true solo for a judge, so they normally cut some slack if it sounds like you learned the music and can mostly play it. Mistakes happen, especially with younger musicians. Congrats!
I had an oboe judge and I got a two. If it weren't for the fact that my teacher ended up being the chair person in my room I probably would have gotten a three. She helped to calm me down to the piont where I could play an ok performance. She's awesome! I love her to death!
