Don’t give up! Everyone experience’s ups and downs. Sometimes I lament that I will never be a great violinist, like Jascha Heifetz or any of the other great violinists. Then I remind myself why I decided to learn the violin, to have fun and play music and I strive to be the best violinist I can be. There is always someone out there better than you somewhere. So learn for yourself, have fun and when you want to compare yourself to others, compare yourself to yourself and your own progress! Happy practicing everyone!
