Well I've decided that I need way more practice on the violin. I noticed it when I was practicing my usual 30 mins a day. I recorded myself with my video camera and noticed my technique and sound. My technique was horrible and my sound was much worse. I felt horrible about my playing. I know I'm still partially a beginner, but I started late and I wanted to make up for it. So I've decided to practice for four hours a day, meaning eliminating tv, practicing piano for an hour, and discluding all the things I usually do.
My question is, how do I go from a half hour of practicing a day to four hours a day? I would do three, but I kind of want to discipline myself for it and I would do five but I don't have much time after school. So what's your advice for practicing four hours a day? It wouldn't be so hard for me if I didn't have a problem with getting bored so easily. Even after 30 mins I get tired and bored.
Sorry for all the complaining but I don't know what else to do. Plus I want to get a lot more serious about the violin.
Thankyou for any advice!
