An electric violin has once again found its way into the house, in no small part due to the inspiring skill and talent of Lindsey Stirling and 2 Cellos. Of course, Taylor Davis and Bryson Andres must be mentioned, as well!
Money is being scraped together for lessons this time around, not only to ensure proper technique, but to add accountability. There’s also the idea that things might go more smoothly, hence less discouraging, with a teacher helping along the way.
When it comes to learning something new, or even seeking progress in a familiar discipline, clear goals are so important. Modest goals, like keeping a bow from bouncing and being able to play through scales smoothly seem like a much better idea than having goals too far out of reach (like ‘one day’ playing a concert), or not having any goals at all.
Let’s keep our long-term goals in mind, but break them down into manageable, short-term goals that’ll give us the propulsion to keep practicing, and play that concert one day.
So much gratitude and thanks to Lindsey Stirling, especially, a huge inspiration in so many ways!
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
