A would-be pianist

Last Saturday my family visited a concert hall where is located in our downtown. One of my students, who is a high schooler, had invited us to her piano performance. I'm ashamed to say, but it was the first time for us to see that kind of concert.
I'm not familiar with piano, nor classic. Neither is my family. I believed her invitation would be quality time to us even though we don't know the first thing about it.

As for the student, she's been practicing piano to become a pianist. In fact, she's been endeavoring to enter a Japanese college of music and is supposed to take the entrance examination next February. I can bet she's proficient at not only the piano but English.
She's absolutely one of my best and brightest students.

Well, about her performance, I was glad to see the different side of herself because I'm always see her studying English at my class.
After her performance, we had a natter a little bit and she told me her performance this time was the worst one she's ever played. As I mentioned above, I'm the woman on the street when it comes to music. As such I didn't know what was bad. Actually, however, her mother and piano teacher said like that as well. I see....

When we came back our home, her disappointed face and comment that she blew it still stuck in my mind.
I know she doesn't lose heart at anything like this, but I just sent my text message to her- Your goal is not this concert but to enter the university you're aiming at and to become a pianist. I'm sure you'll pull it off.

I'm sure!!
