I played my first note on a violin 1 year ago today. I had my very first lesson on 7/3/09.
I have to say Ive loved every minute!!! My only regret is not been able to have more time to practice (im sure every1 on here feels the same).
Anyway - after 1 yr, 3 violins, 52 lessons & on average 9 hours per week practice - My teacher reckons ill be ready for G5 this year. WHOOP WHOOP
Im so excited but nervous at the same time.
Heres to another great year.
In 2010 I would like to pass G5 practical & theory, get a half decent vibrato & look to join an orchestra (the ones by me accept you at G5 standard).
Best get on and start!!
