Disclaimer: I don't own La Corda D'Oro Primo Passo

——————————

I'm not a beginner anymore yet I feel this emotion rushing inside me.

It's this walk between where we the participants are standing and the stage where the whole school and the judges are.

Those few feet take less that two seconds to walk but it feels like an eternity to me. As I walk those few feet towards the stage where I am to perform, everything from my love of music to fear and humiliation come rushing in.

Will I make a mistake and humiliate myself in front of everyone. No that will never happen, I've done this before. Even when I was a still a child I have perform in front of people and I never made a mistake in my performance.

Never.

I never felt nervous. Yet now at this particular concurs, at this particular selection I am.

But it's not all nervousness that I am feeling.

A voice at the back of my head is telling me to have fun performing.

Music has been my life and I always took a serious point of view to it. But for the past few weeks people I know are telling me that my music has gone softer and more beautiful to hear because at those times I felt different.

I didn't feel serious.

I love music so much at those times.

Being serious is not always the key to a good performance. If my music has no meaning to me then it worthless.

I want to have fun with music for a change and not just perform it because I can.

I walk towards that stage alone but not really I have my instrument and my rivals behind me wishing me good luck.

I walk and continue to until I reach my destination with a new turn to music. I'm going to enjoy performing today not just in it to win.

I walk for the first time not thinking about the competition but just a performance with my new friends watching me at the sidelines.

I'm going to give it my all.

I'm going to enjoy my music. For the very first time.

I realized these things while I walked towards the stage. For a two second walk, it changed my whole perspective about music.

That walk at this final selection couldn't have come at a better time because it changed me a lot. But now I have to perform a new kind of music, the music I have within me that's ready to burst out.

Thank you for reading this.

I just thought it when I was going to perform at school. The stage and where the contestants stood where the same at the La Corda D'Oro Primo Passo anime. So I made a one shot out of it.

Hope you like it.
