A big congratulation to you if you have just completed your piano exam!
If You Did Well ……
Well done! Give yourself a pat on the back for your nice performance. Remember to keep up your good work too!
If You Didn’t Do Well ……
Do not feel discouraged or disappointed. Instead, review back on which part that you didn’t do well during the exam. What is the reason that causes you to make mistakes? Do you have sufficient practice before the exam or is it because you are too nervous during the exam? Analyzing your mistakes is useful so that you do not repeat them again in the next exam.
Do not give up because of this small failure. The most important thing is to stand up from failure and move on.
“ There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure. ”
― Paulo Coelho,
What To Do Now?

Another good news is, you can play any music you like on the piano now without the stress of an exam!
Set Your Next Goals
Good job! You have reached a new milestone by completing a music exam! It’s time to sit down, plan for your next goals and think carefully of what you want to achieve in your future music journey. Have a nice discussion with your teacher to help you set your goals.
