But I feel like I’m in a slump. I just finished performing a solo and now I have nothing really exciting to work on… tomorrow’s lesson should be interesting; she’s picking a new solo for me and we’re looking at 2nd position. Joy. I know the basics but I don’t really want to learn it. I’ve never had to use it yet for the violin. I need a good challenge.
We got the All County music for the performance in February so I’m excited to start really focusing on it, once I learn the beat and stuff. So maybe this goal will come into effect soon enough.
All County is soon. I have to work. I have about 3 more major scales to learn. They’re all so intense. Violin is a lot harder than I thought when I first started, and it’s so difficult to improve, as well. =/
This goal reminds me that I need to practice. It reminds me of my priorities. Now all I have to do is get off the computer to do it!
I’ve learned for a very long time how to play the violin the wrong way. My grip caused the bow to slide down my violin, I don’t point the bow hair correctly, I try moving my whole arm while bowing, I don’t keep the violin up, I don’t bend good enough at the wrist.
There is so much I have to practice while continuing to practice the homework I already have.
Practice, practice, practice Morgan!
