Learning the violin requires dedication, hard work, and a willingness to venture outside one's comfort zone.
Learning the violin may have its challenges. It requires dedication, hard work, and a willingness to venture outside one’s comfort zone in acquiring a better understanding of musical and violinistic ideas. My job as a teacher is to communicate these ideas, considering the priorities of each individual, while recognizing their unique skill sets.
