The 5 Ds By Liliana Lazzari
Talent does not equal success....but this does.
You have to desire to do it, whatever it is. Desire to get a beautiful tone. Desire to play as fast as Paganini.
You have to have the discipline to practice. Everyday. Just do it.
Dedicate yourself to your task. Dedicate your time.
Make goals, set them, and accomplish them. Learn from your mistakes and grow from them. Most of all... don't give up.
Give more to what you want than just your hard work. Give it your soul. Put your heart in it. Love it. Make it a part of you. When you play people will hear you and recognize your heart and you will move them even if you aren't perfect in your execution.
