I've Wandered off the Track...

August 13, 2009 09:38

I am currently a college student, and this summer I have slacked...massively!  I feel as if I deserve some type of excruciating beating for doing so.  Though I haven't wandered away from the instrument, I have gotten wrapped up in the Irish-Celtic style of playing.  But that's not what they ask of you in college.

We have also gotten a new violin teacher, so I have also felt that any effort put into my current technique books would be pointless.  Which is part of the reason why I've been pushing practice away.

I guess, I'm asking for any advice on how to get back into the pattern I was once in.  Back into the 4 hours worth of playing the instrument I love.  Anything to help get me back on the right track would be much appreciated.
