I used to play French horn in high school. String instruments were not in my high school. After I graduated, I was not able to continue playing French horn because it was school owned. But I have retained all musical knowledge. A week ago I bought my first beginner's violin. There are no private teachers available in my area. I long and desire to learn violin and sometimes I wonder if a 35 year old man like myself can learn something as beautifully complex as violin.
