Introducing my journey with the violin

March 30, 2009 14:40

So here I am, introducing myself on my very first blog on violinist.com. I am glad I have found this site because this makes me feel of an amazing community that shares one interest in common the violin( maybe music is more accurate because I have seen violists comment on this site) so I will be posting many blogs in the future with my opinions in many things like new music, late starters, shoulder rests, etc. Now about me:

I started playing the violin around february last year, but not before I made some serious thinking about other instruments like the flute, but thanks to a friend( who plays the piano) I discovered my love for the violin because she always made me listen pieces she liked from videogames and anime.

Then I started looking for videos on youtube and I decided to take the big step, ask for lessons. When I told my mom she was like ok, she told me she would look for a teavher so I was really happy, and I actually ended on the institute where my friend studies piano, but before I got to my lessons I was really scared even the day got my violin (not a good one but its ok for now to learn) I started to doubt if I had what it takes to play the violin and I was really scared.

But then my first lesson came and I got more excited, then I learned twinkle and got more excited, and I got even more excited when my teacher told me I was accomplishing things faster than what she expected.

Then on my first recital I played a concerto by rieding accompained by my teachers mother, and she is a really important pianist here in Ecuador, and even her mother was impressed with me. The next concerto I learned was Vivaldi in A minor which I really like its a really fun piece to play, and    right now Im working on the accolay violin concerto which I love.....or hate? Im still not sure it depends on the part Im working.

So I just wanted to share my journey with all of you, I will keep posting, asking questions about a lot of things specially now because I will go back to school and I will talk about the violin( and andre rieu)  in my essay so you will read many blogs or discussions written by me.
