I have always admired any individual who can play a musical instrument. If she or he can play the instrument(s) well, then s/he has my undying respect and admiration — (and jealousy). :)Tweet
I thoroughly enjoy reading the advice, direction, support, encouragement, and even the good ole heated debate (every now and then), given on v.com by most bloggers. I learn so much and feel delighted to be a beginning violin student. I have been taking private lessons for almost one year. I am very grateful for this opportunity. I am in awe of my instructor’s prowess as a violinist. Given the fact that the majority of you on this blog site are exceptionally talented violin manipulators and/or of professional caliber, I’m wondering if any of you have taken out an insurance policy out on your hands? (Lloyd’s of London, anyone?). If so, what was your determining factor(s)? How much is the annual premium? Who determines you are “worth” insuring. Are there professional violinist panels who say yea or nay? Is insurance something you seriously consider, or am I talking nonsense? I bet Perlman et al. have insurance for their hands as well as their instruments.
I await your responses with respectful anticipation. Thanks in advance for your replies.
