Started learning violin in January 2007 at age 37, with no prior musical background.
Had no practice for over 2 years (one year I thought I wanted to give up (yeah right!) the other due to ill health).
Working full time in the health profession (well, more than full time...6 days a week!)so unfortunately violin has to be a hobby, in the next life I will make it my profession.
Desperately wanting to become reasonable one day (though I am beginning to wonder if I ever will) :)
Violin is my obsession ;)
