Should I quit violin? If you are not up to standard after studying an undergrad degree in violin performance, what can you do? Quit?
I am so frustrated right now, cause I think I may need to face this problem. Although I am sort of not very bad, at least I can play the Tchaikovsky concerto, Ysaye Ballade.. etc (not very good) but I know that many people are way better than me, and I do not think I can get in to grad sch or orchestras after I graduate this April. Thats means the only career for me is being a full time violin teacher, which I really hate to be. I do not know composing and conducting cause I focus in violin during the four years. By the way, the instrument I am using now is not good, and this affected my improvement a lot this four years.
Many people may consider me as a good violinist, but I kind of feel that I am not good enough to survive in the violin industry.
