A New Journey Begins

January 22, 2013 at 1:28 AM

Four lessons have already gone by and I couldn't be happier with my decision to once again play music (used to play flute and clarinet- big differences!). I am having a blast and am already 3/4 through my Suzuki volume 1 book!

However, my goal has never been to "finish this book by next month", or even better "I want to play by [enter date/holiday/event]" because I am new at the violin. Any expectations may seriously hinder your ability to absorb what your violin teacher may teach you.

I am in love with my violin, and my passion for music fuels me to practice everyday. It is a need to excel in anything, especially music. I think it's important to have a connection to the instrument (proper fitting, always caring for it, and general appreciation).

Anyway, I am so glad I have decided to pick up music again because a little part of me died when I was unable to play my flute due to an injury. What made me switch to a violin? It's a beautiful instrument!

I'm excited to have joined this community and happy to meet some fellow violinists from experts to beginners.
