Woe is me. College = classical violin.. BLAH.
So I called the head of the music department of URI [University of Rhode Island] and I asked him about auditions and the criteria.. He said that they only give instruction on classical violin and that I need to play classical pieces for my audition.
Well. This sucks. I have to take up classical lessons again with my old teacher. I suppose the good thing about this is that I can ask him to plague my life with Bach which would be heavenly.
I just feel like I’m betraying myself in a way… My freaking college essay was about how I quit my classical lessons to concentrate on fiddling more for pete’s sake!!!!!!!! Now I have to take classical. I suppose not much will change though… Sessions all around, tin whistle for life, but I’m worried about the pipes. The instrument I’ve been crazy about for quite some time. I have a half set coming in February and now that I’ve learned of what I must do in order to do what I.. want to do… >_> I’m afraid I might have to give up the pipes. I don’t know why I’m thinking this but just the thought of all this is really overwhelming.
Anyways. Done venting.
