Hi, I am Joanne from Indonesia. I started playing the violin actually rather late (around my college time). Here's the problem. Now that I have got this teacher who only teaches me mostly repertoire (he once told me that theories won't be necessary as I'll figure out myself while playing the repertoires). I have been wondering if he does so cos he's been considering my age with no possibility of being professional violinist and so why bother focusing on theories? On the other hand, I think I need those theories as my foundation to play, to actually understand the music.Tell me what to do. Or should I get the theory book and learn it by myself?
Note :Sorry if my English is not that good. ^^"
