I have been playing the violin for seven years. I wasn't exactly serious about it until about two or three years ago. Now, my practice times are longer and I love what I do.
I have three short-term goals presently.
1. Join an orchestra. (playing with other people is my favorite thing in the world)
2.Perfect my vibrato, meaning proper sound, relaxed hand, and fourth finger success. (I feel like I've mastered intonation well enough, but it's always something to worry about.)
3. Have finger-pad calluses on all four of my string fingers. (As in HARD calluses; two down, two to go.)
Long-term goal: make a multi-part violin cover for within temptaion's song Memories.
Audition coming up soon, cross your fingers for me, and thanks for reading!
