I have picked up the violin again after 56 yrs. of not playing it. It is much more enjoyable this time as I do it because I chose to. I had to commandier my daughters violin to get
started. I immediatly joined a local Horizon Orchestra in conjunction with local college that was for adults that wanted to start or return to playing (over30). It practiced for 12 weeks and then a recital which we all survived. Now we are looking forward to this fall to get started again. I am playing both ways, fiddle and violin
have found that at my age some things just slow down, fingers are one of them.
