How do you decide what level youre at ?Id like to hear others opinions on this. even in my 5th year I still consider myself a beginner, so much still to learn. Yet Ive had people tell me Im intermediate and one fiddler even called me advanced. Then I see others that dont play near as well as I (not tooting my horn either, just stating a fact) that consider themselves intermediate or advanced.
I think the standards of classical players vs fiddlers also comes into play.
If you look at the ABRSM standards for even completing grade one which would be a beginner Im sure one would humble themselves and realize they are but a beginner, I know I have. Heres a look at grade one requirements for Viola :
Ive also heard youre a beginner until youve reached year 5, but as we all know time isnt what makes you a better musician, practice does. So let me hear your thoughts on this and what you consider yourself and why.
