I'm an adult beginner and am trying to develop a good, effective practice routine. I would be very interested to hear about other people's routines: how long do you practice, what do you work on daily, what proportion of time for scales or etudes vs. pieces...? It would be great, too, if people could say what their involvement with the instrument is - I'm assuming amateur players like myself would have a very different routine than a conservatory student or professional would. Many thanks! -M.
I'm 38 and today is my 4-month anniversary playing violin. I was heartened to discover that my teacher, who has a Master's in music education with a focus on violin and cello and has been teaching for 25 years, only started studying violin at age 30. So there is hope for us late bloomers!
