Prior to reading this I might have categorized myself as too technical or maybe too musical…lol. I think I’m equally both and find I still get frustrated. I think its more because I don’t have a teacher to guide me through the music. That’s a big factor.
But I really like this post because it helps you realize we need to find the fine balance between technicality and musicality. I too can get really excited about learning a song and quit it if I can’t seem to get it right away. I’ve taught myself to slow down. I can get frustrated from focusing too much on intonation, tonalization, or bow hold that it takes the fun out of the song.
The advice in this post is super helpful. Thanks for shedding light on this! Helps me stay motivated!
