week #54 The end is also followed by a new beginning

At the end of last year, I quit my violin lesson at music school.

Yes, I am not kidding. It was a really hard decision because I could not manage to come to music school anymore.  I could not make a balance with the high overload of thesis writing, too bad.

Indeed, I did not do it in a sudden. I told my teacher that I am going to quit the lesson for 4 weeks in advance. She was a bit surprised but in the end, we had two 'last lessons' and we tried to rehearse the Rieding Concerto in B minor in the last lesson. She gave me a hug and I could not hold my tears (Ha!), it was a bit emotional for me.

Of course, I did not give up my childhood dream. After I left my 'offline lesson', I subscribed to an online violin class namely Julia's Violin Academy. I knew about it from a Youtube Channel, Violinspiration and  I like it! The lessons are very well structured and could follow the lesson at my own pace. Moreover, I could have feedback every week. There is also a community of the members which all of them are the adult learner as well (like me!). They are really supportive and positive. It feels good to know that I am not alone struggling with the instrument! 😁

That's all for now. For the update, I am learning the Kuchler Concertino in G, I hope I could master that piece very soon. Wish me luck!
