To get really good at playing a violin apparently takes about 10,000 hours of practice.
That’s 4 hours a day, for almost 7 years.
Or 2 hours a day for 13 and a half years.
Or an hour a day for just over 27 years.
So it’s not a question of if could I play a violin concerto on my 80th birthday - it’s simply a question of how much I want to….
And yes, the point of this post has nothing to do with violins…
