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.
