The week before Halloween seems like a good time for a spoooky, silly vote. So here it goes: which of the following scenarios do you find most scary? Which give you a nice sense of foreboding and dread?
Here are your options: Taking auditions (eeeeek!), performing in a recital (noooooo!), playing for a teacher (noooot reeeaaady!) facing a really difficult piece of music (tooo haard!) or flying with your instrument (caaaareful!) Or maybe it's....sooomething else!
I realize that this might all sound rather negative and overly-dramatic. But it can't be denied: some violin- or music-related situations tend to get the adrenaline flowing. So in the spirit of laughing a little at our fears, I ask you,
in my spookiest voice, what do you find most "scary" in your fiddle life, and why? Please pick the answer that best describes it, and if it's something else, please describe it in the comments. Also tell us about your "deepest fears" - let's get this on the table, sort it out, then eat a bunch of candy! (Or not, lol!) Happy almost-Halloween!
