Is My Piano Playing Good or Bad? - Self-Defined Musician

Is My Piano Playing Good or Bad?

“Is my piano playing good or bad?”

If you’re asking this question, you should already know the answer to it. You are the one playing, not me.

Do you like the results you’re getting? If so, what more do you want? If not, great. Now you have an opportunity to improve something.

Stop asking other people to evaluate your playing. They can’t possibly know the answer better than you do.

“How do I improve my playing?”

This is a better question, but you might not like the answer:

Practice in such a way that your playing becomes better.

Do you have a specific, clear way of practicing that is taking you where you want to go? Most pianists don’t.

And yet, that is the only thing that matters, and the only thing that you should be evaluating.
