I am a life-long fan of classical music. Started listening to it as a very young child when my father, who was a high school chemistry teacher, brought home a portable record player and a few records. I am not proficient on any instrument, but have sung in many choirs. (I guess voice is an instrument, though I never took any voice training).
Perhaps because I took 2 years of violin lessons I have a fascination for violins, their construction and the whole "aura" around the instrument. They seem somewhat "magical" to me. So I look forward to conversations on violinist.com
