Hi all un the spirit of battling nerves I decided to dress up as if it was the audition day. I'm wearing a more formal tie by the way lol.

@bocaholly I was attending a private music school but i had to quit because it got really expensive and so this year I decided to go for the big fish, collage (which is free). In order to get into the first year of music you have to sit for an audition. They ask you to choose two pieces and two scales a major and a minor natural. Finally a passage read at first sight (MY NIGHTMARE) I suck at that one. But if the audition goes well i can go for my bachelors in music interpretation. Kind of a loooong way but it's worth it. It is on the 25th this month

@JuanFiddler Don’t fret the sight reading. Everyone feels like you do, so you are even with everone on that point. You play beautifully. So smooth between strings and bow direction. It sounded lovely and you look so ar home with the violin.

@Mark @cid thank you so much guys. I'm trying to gather as much encouragement as possible.
