Practice – why I hate it!

Because I’d rather play beautiful and fun music that I excel at. Not hard stuff that constantly reminds me of my weaknesses.

I know! The most difficult thing for me and violin is walking into the room where I practice, facing music I can’t play well (or even at all) and making myself do it. It forces you to look at the ugliest or weakest part of yourself in the mirror – and fix it.

Once that’s patched up, you know there will be another, and another, and another after that. Is kinda like performing plastic surgery on yourself. All I can hope is to satisfy my worse critic (me) at the end.

My learning goals for this upcoming week:

The 4th and 5th lines of the Bruch concerto

Start working on the Helios Overture and Peer Gynt (luckily I’ve played this one before, but not the 2nd violin part)

Doesn’t seem so bad written out here.
