|My handmade German violin|
Things I've learnt since I took up the violin.
1. Its much harder than the piano.
2. Practice needs to be regular and under-practice ( is there such a word?)is unmask more easily in this instrument.
3. You mustn't press your fingers too hard because you will get some cramps. And also you can't lift and move as fast as you should.
4. Invest in a mute. The rubber ones don't last long. Mine has broken into two last week. Not from overuse.
5.The blasted metronome is a useful took to get better.
