Can anyone tell me just how good violinists like Sarah Chang and Hilary Hahn and the rest of the greats were after playing for only one year... two years.... or three years? I wonder how fast they managed to progress through their studies.
Did most of them have lessons every day? Or parents who were musicians? Were any of them pretty mediocre for a while, or were they all pretty much that talented from the get go?
Did they all start their violin studies basically before they could crawl?
I apologize if this question has been asked. I am very interested to know about this, and can't seem to find much information.
