It's going pretty well. My student is 13 and she absolutely loves to play. She practices so much, I'm afraid she'll surpass me in a year or two. We have so much fun during her lessons! We are constantly problem solving posture and bowing issues. She is getting better and hearing and fixing intonation problems on her own too.
One learns so much by teaching.
You got that right.
It's very nice to meet You, Sara! =)
How long have you been playing the violin?
Well, I’ve owned or rented a violin since I was seven years old, but my instrument sat in a closet for most of the last eighteen to nineteen years. I’ve actually been playing for about nine or ten years total, but I only started playing again in August of this year, so I’m still pretty rough around the edges. See, I bet you thought that was a simple question.
Yep LOL! I've found that question not easy too XD...
I actually just bought a new (to me) violin a few days ago off of ebay. I’m anxiously awaiting its arrival. It is made by Gotz. I’m hoping it will have a better sound than my old violin. If not, I’ll pass it along to someone else.
I hope You'll show it to us !!!!??!!! I'm very curious XD
Thanks for contributing this. I have spent time in the area where (I assume) you live. I call it "The Town that Time Forgot."
I am curious how you define Intermediate. I believe I will always think of myself as a Beginner. I can now say my level is Rough Beginner Plus.
I, too, have had an on-and-off relationship with the violin. The excellence of my current teacher is propelling me forward. It sounds like your current student is very motivated and you deserve a lot of credit for that.
Love the picture, Sara - sock knitters are my favorite people Can't wait to see the new fiddle.
Rough Beginner Plus describes me, too, Gitel.
