So I posted a few months ago and started a huge discussion over a previous matter and got a lot of good insight and feedback which I am grateful for.
Now here is my question,
How quick have I progressed? I have been playing violin for almost 2 years (will be 2 in November) and I am starting on the Mozart Violin Concerto (no.3) and I'm playing the final pieces in Mazas (my teacher skipped around to the harder pieces) no.23, 18, 30, etc. I would really like to play the Mendelsson or Bruch really soon. However, my teacher says i'm progressing really quick I'm not sure how quick it is to get to Mozart in a little under two years. Now, I'm not rushing through or trying to skip things to play the harder concerti (my teacher would never let me) I have really developed my intonation and tone and have made sure almost all of my notes are in tune everytime I play, and I'm picking up new literature every single chance I get (playing in several small ensembles, two youth orchestras, solo violin pieces) and I have been working out of Flesch scales, mazas, Sevcik book 1-4, Sevcik op 8, and of the like and have i have been work really hard to progress even faster.
My question is, where do you guys believe I am technique/progression wise? Within a year or two where you do believe I can end up playing (Concerti, Etude books, etc.) If i really keep at?
Any suggestions help!
