I am an violin lover (I started to play at 12). I hope my son to be a perfesional violinist. My son started his violin lession at 5. Now he is 10. In past two years, he won prize in the competition every year in his age group.Adjudicator said he got find natural talent.
But I also got some nagtive comments from my friend. They said if I spent same quantity of time and money on my son on other subjects, he will be better off if he is ending up as a doctor or engineer. They said I have chosen a tough road for my son because there are not much job for musician.
Someone told me it is better let me son to choose his career when he grow up. but it seems if he does't practise today, he won't be good tomorrow. if he practise 2-3 hours a day today, he won't have much time for his shool work.
In last few month, I find my wife start worry....I hope to hear your opioion. Thanks
