Right now, I am a freshman in high school playing Mozart 5 and Kreutzer's Etudes. Considering that I have been labeled as 'very talented' by professionals and teachers (I have a very high IQ and intelligence in many different fields), about how hard would I have to work in order to have played Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, and the Paganini Caprices by the time of my high school graduation? By the way, I started playing when I was ten (four years ago) and have had private instruction for two months now. I am currently practicing two hours a night and I was able to learn all of Mozart 3 in two months.
Having said all of this, am I on track to achieve the aforementioned goals?
