Hi there, I’m an adult beginner violinist. I’ve started playing the violin in June 2015 at the age of 30 years. There is no violin teacher close to where I live, so I am self-taught now, learning through YouTube videos, forums and books about violin playing. It’s quite some journey! I am soooo excited that I finally am learning to play the violin!

I hear many people say that you have to start to play the violin when you're very young, but I think age is not that important. What matters is how motivated one is and how much fun you can have with it! :-) Anyway, I'm enjoying every minute of my violin adventure.

I do record a video every month to keep track of my progress. It really helps me to see what I should work on and which things have improved already.

I also keep a violin diary on my website www.violinadventures.com.
