So, I've been studying the violin for 2 years and a half now, I like the way it is going, i dont know if I am the most fast learner but, I love the instrument.
I am right now studying, Bach's violin concerto in A minor, Kreutzer no2, Sevcik 23 and 24 (2nd position), Laoureux, 3 octaves scales and arpeggios.
So, the problem here is, am I too old?
I've started when I was 19 years old! Now Im 22 already (turned 22 last month).
That is what that hold me back to fully give my self to the violin! I love it, but I always think i am too old, people say that I shouldnt think like that, there is still time, but.. cmon! Perlman played Mendelssohn's violin concerto when he was 13 right? lol
The thing is, am I too old to take violin as my profession? Can I hope one day play in one orchestra? I dont want to be a soloist.
