I have just joined a local community orchestra. It's my first orchestra experience (at the age of 27, not 7! :(
Anyway, I have joined their rehearsals 2 times and it's still quite overwhelming. I'm amazed at people's sight-reading skills and the ability to play the music so fast as if they have practiced 50 times already. People encouraged me that it'll take quite a while (6 months?) before you get used to it. so just wondering if other adult learners have similar experience and how you have overcomed all the difficulties... and how you feel about the whole experience :)
