I would like to get some tips about how to use the hours I use travelling by train to practice or get better at violin.
I am a passionate amateur violinst and I would love to use all my hours travelling in the best possible way. I have read a lot about this topic and asked my violin teacher.
What I normally do now is to try to memorize my sheet music and listen to youtube recordings of the pieces I am rehearsing at the moment.
The thing is my head gets tired after 2 hours memorizing sheet music, and I feel like playing it. Are there other things I can do when travelling (mostly by train) to practice? I have considered buying an El-violin to practice mute in the train, but my teacher thinks it’s a bad idea. I would love to be able to practice scales and arpeggios in the train, but I can’t figure out how whithout disturbing others. Since I work as an architect but I love music and violin, I try to be effective when I get the chance to rehearse.
Thank you for your tips!Tweet
