DIE STERNTALER 【星の銀貨】

My daily life in Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.

Michelangelo

I take a violin lesson every two weeks.

I'm studying Saint-Saeans Violin concerto No.3.
No matter how hard I try, I can't play it well.
 
There are some papers on the mirror at my teacher's lesson room.
Last time, my teacher pointed one and asked me to read it.
 
' I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. MICHELANGELO'
 
He said "This philosophy is very important in art. I know you worked hard. But when you play in front of people, don't show them your sweat. You just need to let the music free. Don't be so serious. I don't say not to care about, you should care about your playing. But not only that. Enjoy your music! Then people can feel your music much more"
 
His word released me. 
I worked on technique, intonation. I forgot to sing the music!
 
He also told me to see 'prisoners' on Internet. 
 
Michelangelo saved my violin life!
