Before I go into it, I would like to say that the recital went really well. For ME. I played the pieces much better than I had played them before. My friends M. and B. came and we were blown away. . .by the fact that some of the groups were terrible. Others were excellent. The not-so great groups seemed to have one person in them with little to no experience and that one player was the cog in their wheel.
I DON’T think I was that cog!! I’m gonna be honest here, and say what’s on my mind. The Flautist was snobby and not “all that,” and kept blaming ME for messing up when it was HE who was doin’ the messin’!!!
You know the type of dude I’m talking about. The kind of dude who affects an almost-British accent and corrects me whenever I said, “Saint-Saens.”
“You mean ‘Saaaauugggh Saaauughh?’ ”
No. Saint-Saens. I took French for 5 years.
And then he goes and can’t hit a lot of the notes!
So we filled out a midterm questionairre.
I filled it out honestly.
I was removed from my group.
So I was right.
