Rock School

Last night, went into a rock school, find out things. They don’t teach rock violin, just the usual band stuff.

Talked to the owner, can a guitar teacher mentor me? Supposed to get back to me if a guitar teacher can help as the electronics are the same – if no one can/will then ask around, get the word out.

Is both good and bad I can’t find a rock violin teacher. Means there is a huge need for them – at the same time, I need one to mentor me! Plan B!

I will keep asking! I intend to be a pain in the universe’s ass until I find the person I need.

Plan C – will ask a guitar teacher at one of the schools where I teach if she can help me learn the electronics.

Plan A (Rock Camp) had to be scrapped for this year, for non-negotiable reasons.

Plan D – ask my (classical) teacher who she knows.

Never, never, never give up!

Rock School

Walked into a rock school yesterday, find out what’s up there. They don’t teach violin, just the usual band instruments.

I play violin, need to learn rock, how to play my electric? A guitar teacher could do it, right?

Talked to the owner – supposed to get back to me, find someone for me.

The fact that I can’t find anyone to teach me rock violin is good and bad at the same time. There’s obviously a huge need for rock violin teachers . But I need a mentor first! The fact that I can’t find one anywhere near me – in spite of being pretty well-connected in the string player world – says all I need to know why I must do this.

If they can’t help me out here at the rock school I have a plan C.

Plan A had to be shelved for this year sadly for a couple of non-negotiable reasons.

Plan B is this school.

Plan C is a guitar teacher at one of the school where I teach. If she can’t help me, still it gets the word out.
