I love to perform and take my practice very seriously. My piano and flute teacher are both very competitive teachers. They will help me prepare songs for competitions. Music requires tons of dedication. I get up at 5 am so I can get all my practicing done, and I even do school at home, and I need that much time! But it is totally worth it to me. I don't always like practicing but I like the results when I do. I never miss a day. (Well except maybe Saturdays…)
I'm not sure if I will end up as close with my new teachers. But I probably will. Lots of times it take a while to get close to people. That's another thing that is hard, but it is worth it in the end.
