I returned to the violin at 59 after a 40 year hiatus. I really enjoyed it and surprised myself at how much I did remember. The most important thing that happened was remembering just how important it is to me to make music. Having a good teacher made this much easier than it would have otherwise been. Sadly chronic injuries have taken me off the violin and I've moved my musical focus to the Hammered Dulcimer, but I still drop in to this excellent forum to see how everyone is doing.
