People who seek to play the violin tend to be music-lovers, so it's not surprising that some violinists are also proficient in other instruments.
I'm curious about which instruments, besides the violin, that violinists tend to play. Is it another stringed instrument, such as the viola or guitar? Or is it the piano? Or something a little more outside the family, such as the trumpet?
As for me, I've dabbled with the flute, mandolin and piano, but the only one I'd say I was moderately proficient in is piano. With that instrument, I can play what I know, but I don't have much depth when it comes to being able to sit down and read things with ease.
How about you? Are you strictly a violinist, or do you have a second instrument? Or more than one? If you are proficient in a number of instruments in different categories, please just choose the one that you feel most proficient in, then describe the others in the comments below.
