I saw a post about this in 2012. I thought it would be really interesting to ask the current users; "Why did you start playing the violin". I find this especially interesting with adult beginners.
For myself, I have always liked the violin, but never paid much attention to it or classical music. They were just things that were on a list of "I don't mind them". When I was 12, I stayed with grandfather for 6 months and I watched him build a violin. It was such an incredible experience and I wanted to play since then. However, the fire didn't light until I was 28. :( I finally started in January 2016 and I hope I never stop.
