If I could go back and time and have started the Violin at five years old, I would have...but I didn't, and I have to accept that. Had I, and been extremely talented, the Violin could have possibly been my career.
But I do not want it to be my career. And it won't be. However, by the time I am 25 or 30, I want to be able to play pieces like the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and Paganini's Caprices really well. Like if, even though it won't be my career, I went on a stage, I could play the most advanced repertoire and people'd be pretty impressed.
I want to be very good, but it won't be my career.
Is that possible?
