I had two auditions with two different excerpt lists this week within a span of five days. While I didn't win, I feel on top of the world!! I'm excited with the progress I'm making, and the way I'm beginning to perform under pressure. As I talked with my teacher about my "two rejections" he said, "Try not to see it as 2 rejections in one week, but rather 2 opportunities to gain knowledge, wisdom, experience and strength." How does Peter always know what to say?? I continue to feel lucky to study with someone who is constantly challenging me.
