When I hear other students play in master classes, studio recitals, competitions, on the radio (From the Top), etc. I often think, "Well, he/she is really good, but still just sounds like a student." I can't really point to specific aspects of performance that give me that impression, though. Assuming basics like good intonation, good tone, and at least basic phrasing are present, what would you say are some of the things that make the difference? Or is it a difference that can't be put into words?
