I am 15, and have been playing since 8th grade, ( i'm in tenth now )... And I want to make my career in music. I do take private lessons, but she has me in between suzuki 3 and 4, And those come so easily to me, I just practice them enough to where they're memorized. She doesnt want me to learn the "hard" pieces yet, but i do it anyway without her knowing.
I listen to recordings of professionals like Janine Jansen, Joshua Bell, and Hilary Hahn, and this really helps playing.
I have tought and continue to teach myself the Bruch Concerto, the Sibelius, Mozart, Elgar. The lark ascending, and many other pieces.
I can shift to 7th position. So with me only playing for two years, are my dreams unreachable?
