The young violinist

Gillian’s parents were both musicians, her dad a singer and her mum a violinist. She had realised from a young age that she hadn’t inherited her dad’s voice, but she had quite a talent FOR / TO / IN / OF playing instruments.

So, when Gillian was seven years old, her mum arranged for her to take violin lessons. The teacher was astonished at how skilful Gillian was. ‘In ANY / SOME / MOST / ALL probability, she will be a huge star one day,’ her teacher remarked.

By age 11, Gillian was performing in her town’s orchestra and became a featured soloist by age 14. She PUT / SPENT / DEVOTED / OFFERED so much time and effort to her violin studies that her parents felt she wasn’t studying enough. ‘I hate to BREAK / SHARE / SPREAD / TELL the bad news to you, but you’re going to have to read more and play less,’ her mum told her.

Gillian, a high-achieving student at school, felt discouraged BY / TOWARDS / ABOUT / OVER this news. She loved to play the violin more than anything in the world.

Because of this, she found herself in quite a dilemma. Should she abandon her lifetime OBJECTIVE / ABITION / DESIRE / SPIRIT to perform onstage, or should she hold onto it and just let her school marks be above average, rather than excellent?

As much as she felt she had a responsibility to her studies, she chose the latter. She TOOK / ENTERED / ARRIVED / CAME at this decision by telling herself that being an above-average student was something to be very proud of, but being a professional violinist was a dream come true.
