Hey firsties! I'm so excited for you to start this new chapter of your lives! Here are a few tips that I wish I had done in music school, and I hope that, with these tips, you guys can get further than I did!
The start of music school really felt like I was transported to Hogwarts. So much to learn! So much to see! So much to do! So many thing... I never even heard about.
I very soon became self-conscious of that fact that I really didn't know much at all about music. I questioned whether I was worthy of being in music school. I questioned whether I was worthy of my professors' time. I questioned whether I was worthy to even play the flute.
It took me a really long time to realize that I had mixed my personal worth with my professional work. Save yourselves the headache and heartache. You ARE worthy! You are worthy of music school! You are worthy of your professors' time! You are worthy to play your instrument! Your worth actually has nothing to do with any of those things!
Just the fact that you are a living, breathing human being is enough to make you worthy. You are worth everything. You matter much more than any instrument in the world.
Sending you guys so much love. Enjoy the wild ride of music school! <3
