When you stop getting gigs.
Pavarotti said that before he had appeared publically and had been studying under various teachers year in, year out, he was really tired of practicing,taking lessons and rehearsing parts.
He was going up the steps at La Scala one afternoon, and coming down just then was the most famous tenor in Italy.
After they greeted each other Pavarotti said,
"Maestro! When did you stop practicing?"
The tenor looked at his watch and said, "About ten minutes ago."
Maybe it is when, as legend has it, Clarke said to Mendez, "My boy, perhaps I should be taken lessons from you".
With me, everyday is a lesson of some sort. Listening to a performance, rehearsing somewhere, listening to section mates, etc.
And especially from sites like this when the top pros pass on tips.
