What should I do?

I have been practicing for this solo in band (clarinet) for months now and the contest is tomorrow but I'm not ready. As in I still need to practice the solo more. Its 5 minutes and I don't know if I can play the whole thing in one take yet (I will get to a part and I will work dynamics and things) but I don't know if I should play tomorrow or tell my music teacher that I'm bailing. I know that sounds bad but I don't want to screw up in front of 3 judges and my music teacher.

  • You could practice for several more days and still not feel ready. Experience tells me that when you feel somewhere between 60-70% ready, that's as good as it gets. Your subconscious takes over and you perform much better than you anticipated you would
