Today I asked my two students who work together on piano duets what they felt was their biggest achievement after all these years of music study. The younger (16) specified her ability to understand the sense of what she plays. The older (21) named his ability to keep going even though there are errors.

These responses pleased me a lot, since they speak to precision and comprehension. Nice to feel one has access to those things while still a young student, I would say.
