As I continue my violin studies, I find that I am becoming more and more distant from the music. It seems that my mind is more pre-occupied with playing the right notes and proper technique and intonation, than creating beautiful phrasing. If I really concentrate, I can truly get absorbed in music making, but it is only for fleeting moments and not sustainable. When I was younger, I would sometimes lose myself in the music and be so into creating music that I could play for hours. But now, that out of body experience is rare. Are there any suggestions for getting into the music and having your mind be immersed in music making rather than technique. Any exercises?
