Great story!

Don't feel bad.  In conservatory settings when someone says, "Well,  
your performance was musical..."  it usually means that they thought  
it was sloppy!


"Musical" = lots of wrong notes, unsteady rhythm, a sincere effort  
that failed.
"Unmusical" = no wrong notes, every nuance perfectly executed, but  
none-the-less unexciting.

Either way, you lose.
I feel your pain.

Gotta love classical music!  :)
