parents never really forced anything on me, I wanted to be put in soccer, karate, guitar and dance lessons. I only was put in art lessons and violin lessons, both only continued until 6th grade. I was shit and violin and I was alright with art, I really liked the art lessons though, I always thought it was fun.

>Mt parents never really pushed me >implying child prodigies became child prodigies through hard work yeah, cause a 7 y/o who played piano for 1 week and has mastered dozens of technical etudes is a real hard worker
>>26299020 Well for me, my teachers just happen to notice that I did not even remotely struggle with that they were giving me. I was given some tests to evaluate my level, they talked to my parents and they bumped me up 3 grades. That was it.
>>26299120 I've been playing for 8 years, and as somebody who could play Chopin's technical etudes within a year of practise, I can confirm that its all about luck of the draw. There are people who pay for teachers, rigorously study for years and cant manage shit. How do you explain them?
Because my parents aren't dictators that force their kid into hours of shit they hate because they want some prodigy trophy child to show off to other people and make up for their own lack of self worth. Do you think that girl gives a fuck about the violin? She probably just wants to hang with friends or watch spingebib like every else
