Hey guys,

I'm a 15 year old violinist who has basically been jumping around from one violin exam to the next, and I recently finished my Shanghai Music Conservatory Grade 10 exams with merit did my ABRSM Grade 8 with distinction. This has basically been the moment I've been waiting for for most of my life, since violin was kind of forced on me when I was younger. But in this past few years, I've grown to really love it, but because all I did before was exams, I've found that I don't really know much about my instrument (in terms of famous pieces, famous players, common pieces that most people expect me to know how to play :/). I know that if I want to be able to know all that, I'll need to go read and play, but I was wondering if any of you guys had any advice on where to start?

And on another note: do any fellow violinists have any info on G. S. Tartini violins?

Thanks!

I'm not a violinist (more woodwind and percussion) but a brilliant site for getting free copies of non-copyright sheet music is http://imslp.org/. Any romantic/classical/baroque pieces you can see on youtube will probably be on there somewhere

And for me, the best thing to do with your skill for an instrument is join a group (if you're not in several already!). There will be string groups, full and chamber orchestras, musical bands and chamber ensembles out there that you can join (especially if you are of Grade 8 standard and above). You get to learn a great variety of pieces, and it's a great deal more fun than practicing on your own
