Violin v Music

Matt Sillence

Shrewsbury, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

I started playing the violin when I was 7 years old.. soon going through the grades and at 13 yrs old I was the one and only person to get 21 out of 21 in my scales and arp’s at grade 5 and 139 out of 150 in total. Came 3rd in the country…. I played a duet of Vivaldi’s four Seasons in front of the BBC news reader John Humphries and many guests. When I was 15 all changed… I lost my teacher because he decided to move up north to Manchester, that was the steady down hill road… Eventually gave up after my 16th birthday having only grade 7 and 8 to do… I am now kicking myself…..
