How long to have a teacher for the fiddle?
I started the fiddle last September, so I’m still quite the neophyte and frankly not so splendidly good yet. This question is a bit premature, but how long ought one to have a teacher? It seems like you could have one for years and years—like my classical friends—but as I’ll probably be going to college soon, that worries me. I don’t want to give up playing just because my life is taken over by Plato and Aristotle! At what point can you get by on your own?
