I do wonder sometimes if my violin lessons are all going a little bit too fast. Now, I don’t mean this as a bad thing, but I do wonder if my brain needs more time to allow things to sink in. Usually, most people would be learning how to read music and have to cope with that as well as learning the practicalities of the instrument. Seeing as I play the piano fairly competently, I don’t need to learn the rudiments of music theory, so half of what I would’ve learnt in my lessons is not required. Saying that, I guess seeing as I don’t need to learn the theory again, I might as well learn more about the practical aspects. More time to practice my three octave arpeggios I guess. 🙂
