I particularly like the part where you say, “Is there someone better than you? No? Find someone better than you.” Brilliant. I stumbled across this comic after writing this article…http://stephenshapiro.com/the-best-should-worry/
HI – Repeating a request from someone else 3 years ago… may I use this to send to our musicians for a summer practicing reminder? I’ll keep (c) and url visible!
Absolutely! Thanks for sharing it with your musicians.
I LOVE THIS!! It is the background on my studio computer so all of my students can see it.
Ahh the sting of the truth. >.<
I just realized this is your property….duh. May I use it on my Middle School music website?
Yes, of course. All I ask is that you don’t remove the website url or the copyright notice. Thanks!
This is my wallpaper on my cell phone as a reminder
This is GREAT! May I have permission to place it on my piano studio website and link it to your site?
I find this both inspirational and motivating.
Reblogged it at http://chaos.bergcube.net/
I used the picture on my blog and linked back to it because I think it’s just so great! I hope that’s alright. There’s not much traffic on it, just a place to spill my thoughts.
Yes, of course that’s fine. Thank you for sharing it on your blog!
Honesty strikes home!
Take that multiplly it by 3 for piano Then times 7 for making the all state choir, then by 9 for being a soprano, then by 100 becuase I’m buying a violin…………… Gotta love music :3
Wow. You have put in some serious practice time!
This guy reckons you should basically be practising unless you’re sleeping, and you’re managing 18,900 times that much? Impressive.
I have this hanging up on my board behind my piano and my students of all ages read it out loud before they sit down to play. They do it at every lesson without prompting.
Take Care, LL
Love this! I’m posting it in my Beginner Band Lesson Room. The kids will love it!
One of my music parents gave this to me at school today.
Now I’ve spent half of my lunch break reading your comics. Awesome!
As a 4th-8th grade instrumental music teacher for 24 years, I especially like the ones that reference public school instrumental music.
I am a violist.
Thank you for your strip!
So true — now multiply that by four instruments:-)
