I think what you are picking up on is that music is more than just a collection of notes. It also has to do with the communication of emotions and feelings in audio form.
You see this often when you compare how children play music to how the masters play it. You may easily find some young wunderkind in the world which has a good mastery of the .instrument but lacks the mental faculties to portray the emotions and feelings of the music.
I recently saw a rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" by a very young girl, maybe high school age. The thing that struck me was that yes this girl is a good singer.
The sounds that her mouth makes is really pleasing, but this song is about a woman who loses her job and turns to prostitution to earn enough for the care of her illegitimate child.
Does this young girl really understand the subject matter that she is singing about? Can you really expect a teenager to understand such subjects? I think not.
So yes I agree with the other answer. It may be technically correct, but lacking in interpretation. For a young child, I would not be too bothered by that yet. You need some emotional maturity for this interpretation to come.
This may easily come by just growing up a bit.
