The Music Student: Trials & Joys

There's a teacher who posts videos of her students on Youtube who goes by the name "BelCantoV". I subscribe to her video posts. One of her students is a young lad named Andrei who seems like a very cool and precocious little dude. Though he's young, he's already begun composing his own music (examples: ">here and ">here).
Anyway, his latest video performance is an excellent microcosm of the typical music student's experience. At first one tries and does not succeed, but if one is willing to persist and remain patient the joy of music and the thoughtfulness of its great artists will gradually unfold. Or, as BelCantoV puts it, "Everyone can see how hard we try and how many passions in music we have...". That sounds like Yoda to me, but at this moment I'll buy it.
Here's Andrei taking Tim Gunn's advice and "making it work":
