I told my teacher that I was thinking about "stopping the violin". Naturally she told me it was up to me but also asked questions about why (in a positive, interested way).
Anyway I don't know how the idea got fixed in my head but it has a lot to do with slow progress. I know I shouldn't compare myself to others but even when I just look at myself I know I can do a lot better. I don't know any names of composers (then the non-musician). I don't know subconsciously if thats because I really don't like the violin or something else....
I know I have made little progress but every time I play after a few minutes I know I'm going no where because I don't know how to improve.... I know this sounds very inane after playing for 7-8 years... Advice? Should I try another instrument? Start "fresh" somehow on the violin? Thanks again
