When I saw this I realized it was lightyears away, but I learned something from it anyway. Thoughts?

I wish it was easier than it seems! It’s level 9 out of 10 levels,of difficulty http://violinmasterclass.com/en/graded-repertoire/violin-and-orchestra

Although we’ve all heard about the 10,000 hours, I think this has now been debunked. Favourite book of mine, the author says

Forget about the 10,000-hour rule you’ve heard so much about. It’s a red herring. What’s important is not the hours you’ve practiced, but the kind of practice in your hours. Focus on the tree, not the forest.” 
― Jonathan Harnum, The Practice of Practice

I suppose it's like eating an elephant . One bite at a time. I can't personally attest to this. In theory it is possible.

Well, I guess I would say it is harder than what he makes it look like...:)

Probably not as hard as it might seem though I'm not familiar with the music. The kid looks very animated.

I think it all goes back to a time investment. How many quality hours can I devote to perfection? How many hours are required? Yes I'm a gonner. That's a polite replacement term I don't often use, hopefully it gets the point across. I think when looking at the time needed It's going to take much longer than I realized. Remember the 10,000 hour rule? If you can do 5000 you might be a decent passable, If you can do 3000 hours you can be average. How many hours a week do you invest? I have a life :)

This one's a dream for me.  I love it.
That instructor is so hard.  And he takes it well. I'd be so frustrated.
