Does hard work and perseverance bring success in music lessons?
I played Caprice by Paganini on the Piano as a child. Anyone familiar with this musical piece knows how challenging the technicality of it is! It’s even more complicated to learn to play it in the assigned tempo 🎻Here’s the Russian-born Israeli violin virtuoso Maxim Vengerov performing it with a presumed ease.
However, did you know that when Maxim Vengerov started taking Violin lessons at age 5 with his famous teacher Turchaninov, he did not like the lessons and wanted to quit. At one point, Vengerov flatly refused to play even one note for the teacher, for five straight lessons! 🎹🎻She told his mother that she was dismissing him as a student. His mother started to cry. Upon seeing that, Vengerov picked up his violin and played 17 assigned pieces from memory, without interruption.
If Maxim Vengerov would have quit the lessons, would we receive the world-renowed musician? Only his hard work and determination brought him tremendous success in life.
The perseverance bring success in music lessons!
Children who work hard and keep going despite challenges and temporary losses of interest in music lessons achieve a great success!
Thank you, Maxim, for bringing the joy from your musical performances to our hearts, our world!
