So after two weeks after our computer collapsed I’m finally playing again.
We’re back to good old Windows 7 as 10 crashed two times in a row on us.
I did end up buying some of the EP’s and SP’s on a disk instead of using my digital downloads. I don’t want Origin anywhere near my computer. No, no, no😑
I'm a freshman in my school's wind ensemble (the higher band at our school) and after our honor band auditions which the seniors didn't practice for I ended up first chair? And I think I'm gonna die? Cause just the upperclassman actually are better than me and I know they know it cause I can't play the whole songs as fast as them or anything like that. Any advice on getting better fast? I don't wanna give up.
Hey, there anon. I do actually have some advice for you: don’t worry. You worked hard and practiced and it paid off. If you keep working hard and keep practicing, it’ll keep paying off. There’s no get good quick trick, but also? You don’t need to be so hard on yourself–you already are good, or else you wouldn’t have gotten the spot. I promise. Keep going like you have been, and you’ll be fine. Speed and technique’ll come with practice; as long as you don’t get cocky and keep up the hard work, I’m sure you’ll actually surprise yourself with how well you can keep up.
And the thing is, if you lose first chair? It’s not the end of the world. You’ll have gained experience, you’ll keep gaining experience, and there’s no law written anywhere that says you can’t get get it again at a later point. That’s not to say you will lose it–I’m sure you won’t–but if you did, worst case scenario, I promise, is not that bad. Remember, you’re a freshman playing with seniors; that alone is a huge accomplishment, and to be first among them??? That’s incredibly impressive!!!! Like, seriously!!! Congratulations!!!
Tl;dr, you’re doing great already. Keep up the effort and enthusiasm, and it’ll keep paying off for you. Don’t let the others intimidate you. You are better than you think, and if you think of yourself rather than them as your greatest competition, then you might find practice and progress a lot more rewarding. Good luck!
