My New Year’s Challenge: Learning Two Pieces in Five Days!

January 17, 2017, 3:57 PM · Greetings and hello to everyone on Violinist.com. This is my first blog here, and I’d like to tell you about a challenge that I set for myself, to learn two pieces in just five days!

I am 10 years old and have been playing the violin since I was 4. Can I get it done? I’ve documented this challenge on video, how I practiced for these five days — I hope you enjoy seeing whether I managed to complete this challenge!

The two pieces are:
- Wieniawski Variations on an original Theme Op.15
- Rimsky Korsakov - The Golden Cockerel Fantasy - Le Coq d'Or
