I'm retired and returned to the fiddle two years ago. Up to now I've been so keen & passionate, but for some reason (teacher away? old age?) I've started to feel that I'm going backwards. The sound I'm making sounds worse than before - I don't want to practise as much as I used to do - and I am beginning to wonder if the game is worth the candle.
Have any of you experienced this, and how did you overcome it. Are there tried & tested solutions? Go in for exams? Find a new teacher? Go to a fiddle school or violin camp? Have a 'rest' for some weeks before going back? Just ride with it, and persevere? Find a new repertoire? Sleep & exercise so that you feel more energy? Any and every 'magic wand' accepted!
Thanks in advance for any replies
