Hello. My name is Xiao Hong. I am 16 years old and a sophmore in highschool. My very first violin lesson will be on Wednesday. I can read sheet music very well, so I hope that will prove to be an advantage. I'm also a dilligent worker. I've loved the violin since I can remember and I'm so excited to finally get to play. Music is my passion and my life.
That brings me to my questions. I would like to audition for a performing arts Highschool in January. They require That I should be able to perform two and three octave scales that include shifting with arpeggios and two pieces of contrasting stle. Would I be able to achieve this by February? I have lessons every wednesday for half an hour and I plan on practicing every day. I'm very serious when it comes to these things. If I work hard, will I be able to achieve these goals? I have faith in myself, but I'm hoping that I'm not being naive.
