Hi, I’m Thien Chan. I started playing the violin over 1 years ago and now I am self-taught. I subcribed to the newsletter from this site quite long ago, but I actually joined this forum since the contest. To my surprise, this forum is full of stories and lessons of people from diverse levels that inspire and inform me a lot. Especially, I find video feedback really helpful for a self-taught student like me. I received specific and constructive one every time I posted a video. Thankfully, Ms.Dianne, who accepts to teach me online through this forum, is not only professional but dedicated as well.
I remember the first time I received email from this site 3 months ago, I replied one to Michael Sanchez. He replied after one day. He gave me detailed comments and sent me the whole CHAPTER 5 OF HIS BOOK: FIDDLE FOR DUMMIES. I’m very grateful for his generosity. I’ve watched every daily tips he sent me. Besides, I actively search lessons I need to notice on this website and youtube channel. They are great sources of techniques and experience.Last but not least, I’ve learned how to get in to a solid practice routine to form a firm foundation. I haven’t miss a day practice since then, however, I don’t have time to come back and earn entries following the practice routine challenge. Though, I follow every step he instructed and I see my self improve over time.
Every journey begins with a single step. I’m enjoying my journey. Hope all of you will enjoy your journeys too.
