I began lessons in my 20's, then life got in the way. 20+ years later, my 6-year-old daughter thought that she would like to learn to play the violin. I made a deal with her that if she wanted to take lessons, so would I. I'd forgotten how much I loved playing and now it is once again one of the joys of my life. I primarily play for my personal enjoyment, but occasionally play in church. One day I'd like to join a community orchestra or quartet.
