#005: How to Know if Your Music is Done [Finding the Finish Line]

Do you have nothing to play except a drawerful of half-baked pieces?

You’ve practiced hard to learn your piece. Now what do you do with it, especially if you aren’t planning to perform it? Keep practicing, and if so, for how long? Put it away?

If you’ve ever wondered how to tell if your piece is really done or what to do with it when it is, you are not alone.

Starting a piece is the easy part. Your energy level is high and you’re ready to dig in. Then the going gets tougher as you drill the notes and the fingering. Finally, the piece begins to turn into music. This is when you discover that you have no clue what to do with it now. 

On this week’s podcast episode, I reveal not only how to decide when your piece is finished, but also the four “finish line” options which allow you to polish your piece for performance, or put it away with pride and a couple of things in between. 

Having a clear plan for your piece is key to your feeling of progress and accomplishment, and when you listen to this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The three stages of learning and how to get through all three. 
  • Why finishing a piece is a personal decision.
  • The four “finish line options” and how to implement each one.  
  • What you can do today to find the finish line for one of your pieces.

Plus, at the end of the show I’ll tell you about a free masterclass I’m giving to help you free up some valuable practice time so you can get those pieces done!
