outofnames Posted February 6 Report Share Posted February 6 I suspect I know the answer but I wanted to hear what others thought. I’ve been playing violin for six years now, I started at age 43 and have no other musical experience. I’ve taken weekly lessons since the start. But my teacher is the only person I ever play with. I decided to push myself and signed up for a string ensemble class. It’s geared towards adult students. I’m the only violin with three cellos plus the teacher. It’s been very frustrating. My rhythmic counting has been exposed as a significant weakness. I decided the only way this will improve is: 1) sticking with it and accepting the pain 2) practicing at home with a metronome 3) practicing at home even more with a metronome 4) using a metronome during lessons with my teacher I hate the metronome. Any other advice from experienced players that they would like to offer? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
