I have been playing the violin for a year, and made a huge mistake when I started to play... Before I would learn the song, I would go through the song and on the sheet music above the note, I would write what the notes were. As a result, I needed to have the notes written before I could even begin to play the song. After a year of this, my teacher (insert HUGE GASP here) made me get the eraser out... I find myself staring at the sheet music like a deer in the headlights, I literally freeze. The thought of trying to read the notes and play at the same time is beyond my grasp. ( I am 46 years old) Do any of you have any suggestions? I have bought some work books and during my breaks at work I am trying to work on it...thank you in advance!
