It seems rather fitting to be writing a blog on the first day of January this year. I predict some change around the corner and even though I haven't made any resolutions for this year (other than the New Year's Practice Pledge, of course!!), I can't wait to get started at school again.
2011 was filled with many great times for me - too many to list in fact. Probably the best thing about 2011 was starting at my new school where I have made the best of friends who all share music as their main interest. The experiences I have had and the opportunities given to me in the short time I have been there have been phenomenal and there will be many, many more to come!
I'm sure each and every one of you have something positive to say about 2011 musically - maybe you started the violin or took up a new instrument, did your first recital, took part in an exciting concert, passed an exam or made more musical friends. Please share below what you enjoyed about 2011 and what you look forward to in 2012! Certainly one of the things we should be thankful for is having violinist.com here for yet another year, bringing us all together in the violin world.
Happy new year, everyone!
