And i'm glad ya still go following in your footsteps and hopefully having similar experiences to grow and perform so while you were at peabody Did you come in. Various tablist goals and priorities And if so did they change through your time and school well. I wanted to be the best guitar in the world. that obviously didn't happen It's interesting when i arrive at peabody I knew i wanted to just my number. One goal was to improve myself Not necessarily be better than others I've never participated in a competition which is strange for classical musician. 'cause all the everybody else that i know they go to competition. They they go into the perform. I've always found that stressful. Or i don't know it was never my. I would never want to compare myself to others. In a way i would just say. Oh we're different. We have different artistry. Who is better. I am i better than you. Especially peabody was i mean. Everybody's pretty good It was. I've never yeah. I've never done a single competition. And i just wanted to share. Music just wanted to become the best guitarist and i could And i think that goal still there with me today Peabody really helped me refine refined my goal with I'm also also write music.
