Robbie and I were practicing his trumpet solo for instrumental contest this evening.
"Have you practiced this with the piano before?" I asked. I practice with him at home, but he has another pianist for contest. The music is a bit too hard for me.
"I played in front of the band!" he said.
"Were you nervous?"
"No. I was just playing the piece," he said. "Sometimes when I play the trumpet, I kind of forget I'm playing. I just concentrate on the music."
"Be the music!" I said, smiling.
I'm glad Robbie's experiencing Flow when he plays music. What he said reminded me of my black belt test--I was each form at that test!
I hope Robbie achieves some measure of flow tomorrow morning at contest!
