Make a bet with your parents. xD If you practice so much then they'll get something for you. Unless they don't really care if you practice.

I made a bet that if I practiced 5 hours a week over summer I could start acoustic guitar in August. 5 hours in the summer is a lot because I barely practice in the summer...

DemolitionLover--:
Ive played the violin for like... 5 years now. I need to practice more. Any ideas how I can get into a routine of practicing? PM me if you do. D:


You just have to get up and do it, set a goal for yoruself, if you hear of a player that amazes you, set a goal to be good enough to play with them or as good as them someday. You've got to have a motivation to practice otherwise you're just going to continue to push it off.

My viola is about a year old. My first viola was pretty much a violin with viola strings. Or a "veeolin". xD Hence where my username came from. It was pretty crappy.

The one I have now is really awesome. It's a Romanian brand called Euro. <3

Lets see...I think my first violin was 5 or 6 years old.
Then it got too small (it was 3/4) and I had to get a new one.
And I got a brand new never used just out of the factory one.
And I've been using that one for less than a year...in September it would be a year.

I have a viola! Wow

Sorry. I got excited. xD

I don't play it anymore, though.
It's too small for me and I just kinda quit.
But I'm planning to start again maybe next year in school.
Except the other kids will probably be better then me, since I took a break.

And is it just me, or do you hate it when they call your viola a violin?

Yay! Mr. Green

Yeah. I explode when someone calls it a voilin. My friends sort of back away and go,"Alright! Alright! Viola! Sorry! It's okay, Marissa, calm down...."

I corrected some kid on the bus who called it a violin, and he goes, "They're the same thing. How are you going to tell me they're different when I know they're the same?" I wanted to punch his face in.

I played violin last year in my school band.
It was so hard.
Usually I can pick up instruments pretty quick,
but with violin I just couldn't!
So kudos to those of you who can play,
I am officially violin challenged.

I've been playing the violin for about 7 years but I stopped and haven't picked it up for about a year now. I should though because I kinda miss it.

Oh and my violin is 23 years old.

i've been playing for just over 4 years....

i'm kind of nervous for next year, because i got into concert orchestra. i didn't think i would. i don't like being in the middle of the orchestra [which i most definitely will... i'm not as good as 11th or 12th graders] XD i'm used to being concertmaster.

XD at least i convinced my mom to get me private lessons over the summer, since i normally don't practice at all for the three months...

I`ve been playing for 3 years. I suck. Okay, not majorly. But there are plenty of people I know that play ten times better than me.

If everyone was left to believe they suck because there are people better than them, then no one would even try to be good, even the greats know someone better than them believe it or not. I'd imaine you're doing fine Mr. Green

Does anyone know about Mark O'Conner's Fiddle camp?

Wow thats a long time =D
I'll hit my 8 year mark in december I finally figured it out.
I take privately and have all my life but have played in orchestras around town.
I think I'm inbetween teachers now though, we've called mine four times this summer to try and get a lesson in and she won't give us the time of day it seems.

That sounds uncalled for.
Get a different teacher or something, being scared shitless while trying to learn isn't going to do anything for you.
