What is your long range motive for being involved with the violin?
Are you in a school program hoping to soon join a community orchestra?
How about becoming a collegiate music major?
Would you want to play local gigs?
Mostly a hobby for your own enjoyment?
Contemplating a professional career?
(There are no wrong answers.)
Personally, my motive is to have a good time and maybe remedy my weaknesses along the way. I like to play in church sometimes because I think the challenge helps maintain an edge but having an audience is not a necessity.
I do not see any immediate goals in my violin future except for my eternal struggle to perfect and expand technique.
