Welcome to A Handel On the Orchestra!

My name is Ally, and I am a 15 year old violinist. I have been playing violin for about 6 years now. I am not a prodigy, nor am I by any means particularly talented, but I have a lot of passion for music, not to mention discipline and will power. This year, I decided to be homeschooled to make room for more practice time. Daily, I practice about 4-5 hours, which is a lot, but not crazy. I love violin and hope that it will be my career. On my blog, A Handel on the Orchestra, I will be reviewing concerts I have been to, talking about the different orchestra sections, repertoire , and commenting on the life of a dedicated musician, even though I am not a musical prodigy.
