Hello. I have been playing the violin for three months in the beginning orchestra class offered by my high school. I'm 15 years old, and have no musical experience prior to the violin. My teacher and private instructor say that I am playing around grade three standard, and they want me to join the advanced orchestra at my school next year. I have developed a clear (arm) vibrato and have good pitch/intonation, but I know that I am nowhere near as good as I need to be to play in the advanced orchestra, which is one of the top high school orchestras in my state. I really need advice on getting to at least grade 5 within the next 4 or 5 months. If needed, I can post a video of me playing one of the pieces I am currently playing in class. Thanks,
