Welcome to the forums Imyongxin, there will be plenty to give advise on here, and we will be interested in your progress!. May I Just say how much I love Singapore, I have visited 15 times over last 22 years. I was hoping to come once more in January before I retire in March, but it doesnt look ,likely now.
There always seems to be plenty of musical activity there .
Later edit, I have looked at some of your Singapore pics, I never took any out there, so I know where to look now.
PS Have you been on that catapult thing at Clarke Quay ?
Yes, in Singapore, our government is actively promoting arts of all forms so lately in recent years we as Singaporeans get to experience more performing art.
No, I have not tried that catapult thing.

Hope your violin journey is all you could ever wish for and more.
Thank you for sharing your photos - I'm half Singaporean on my mother's side but as I'll never have the chance to see that part of my heritage your photos have provided a lovely window.
Thank you for the well wishes. Are you staying in SIngapore?

Hello everyone again,
I have recorded a video of myself playing. I need your help to spot the area where I am causing tension to my right shoulder at the back area. I have been practicing for min 2 hrs per day, and now I am feeling the sore/ache on my bowing shoulder at the back area.
Hence, I am trying to find a way to relax my shoulder. But to no avail. Need your advice and guidance.
PS: Apology for the bad music.
