I’ve given myself one year to master the violin.

As an adult beginner, I should be playing Twinkle Twinkle; instead, I'm playing Paganini's 24th caprice.

Colburn’s starting up again

So this week I have Colburn RA training, which means I’ll be in training most of the day (truly most of the day – until late) and all the while I still have to practice, work out, prepare for classes which start Monday, and somehow post.  I’m going to try to edit and post that lesson with Anna in the next day or so.

To be honest, since I’ve been back I can’t believe I’ve practiced at all, but I managed to every day.  Yesterday was particularly brutal and only got in a measly 15 minutes late last night.  I guess I should get used to a schedule like this.  When classes start it’s not going to be pretty with me teaching every day.  It’s one of the tough things about taking up the violin as a non-musician–it’s still just a hobby.  How many of us have the time to work on our hobby every single day?  Luckily, my wife appreciates my hobby and is very forgiving.  Now if my hobby was bull riding, it might be a different story.

    Life is just one bronco ride after another — when we’re bucked for time — we just continue on — you’ll make it happen — you’ve never failed to make all happen in the past — and I seriously doubt you will now either — but I know what you mean in all that you’ve said —
