Do you play a musical instrument? Do your parents have to keep after you to practice, practice, practice?
In my novel, Rockin’ into Romance, our main character, Arianna, never has to be told to practice her violin. She is intense about her love for music and for her instrument. (And, after all, she IS from a very musical family.) Her parents, however, would like to see her loosen up and have a bit of fun. (Rockin’ into Romance is the 3rd title in the Norma Jean Lutz Classic Collection.)
Teen violin virtuoso, Roberto Ruisi, is like Arianna in some ways. He is so skilled and committed to his music, that he was actually given a rare Stradivarius to play while on tour. The owner of the instrument, John Ludlow, was drawn to Ruisi, as they both come from Edgbaston in Birmingham, UK, and attended the same King Edward’s School.
Amazing things can happen when you are dedicated, disciplined, and committed.
What are the struggles/joys in your life with regard to being a musician? I would love to hear back from you. Leave your comments below.
