Wow, you have lots of talent music wise

you know, I used to be like you; playing almost all the musical instruments in the world but I would like to share this with you.

Back then, every body admires your versatility but when it comes to serious concert, they don't employ your services rather the prefere to employ someone else who is known for a particular instrument cos they feel you are a jack of all thread and a master of none and sometimes, when you sit down to analyse matters, you find out that they are not actually wrong.

But when you play only one instrument or its family (its family because when you play a sax be it tenor or soprano, it just requires a little more effort to play the clarinet and even the concert flute) it leads to specialization and of course virtuoso or mastero in that instrument.

But you know I stuck to my instrument; the violin and when I did, I came to see that I have not even enough knowledge of that because I got exposed to staff and sight reading musical compositions and since then, I am getting better and better by the day! And also guess what, I now choose which of the concerts I would like to be playing at.

So here is an advise: search out your best instrument and stick to it and if you don't sight read music in that instrument, learn how to do that. That would make you a "god" in that instrument. Just think, how many of the world's best instrumentalists play other instruments outside their instrument or its family?

SPECIALIZATION MAKES VIRTUOSOS

Hi Shaz

U start by starting!

Just rekindle your fire by maybe watching Yanni's videos like Live at the Acropolis and Tribute and notice the violinist karen Briggs (the lady in red) I hope this helps!

It's wort the effort you put!

Go start right away!

I am a violinist too!

Hi Samorijack!

Nice to here from you too.

I also play as a solo violinist and have some musical compositions myself!

I have once played in a dinner party where I played Lionel Richie-Endless Love.

I also play with Nnamdi Azikiwe University Western Ensemble.

How I love improvisation

so you see, I do almost every genre of music with the violin!

I am a male based in the eastern part of Nigeria; Aba to be specific!
