I am a musician who used to play the piano a lot, but now plays the pipe organ in churches, recitals, and competitions. At age 17, with 13 years of musical experience, I very rarely play a piece 100% accurately note-wise, despite having tirelessly honed and refined my posture and practice techniques. However, I am told that I excel at inspiring an emotional reaction in the audience.
It may be because I have so much fun playing the music that the details get lost and there is greater sloppiness.
Why am I not playing accurately? What is the secret to being able to play a piece accurately, while still enjoying the music?
