My name is Vernon, I've played violin for twelve years, and it keeps getting better. I've had rather unorthodox training I only had a teacher for a year, with all the rest of my training coming from self study and school orchestra. The last few years I have been focusing on developing true virtuoso technique. I had to take about a year and a half off from playing due to the loss of my pride and joy, before the break I was working on Ernst. My technique is slowly getting back up to my high standard that I hold myself to. I don't compare myself to other players but to myself, if I didn't I'm sure I would be clinically insane.
