Thomas Boyer

Amateur violinist and violist in Philadelphia. Had very good instruction and played a ton when I was young but then came college and career and raising children. Now an empty nester with time to practice daily, I fill my schedule with chamber music.

It has been a great joy to discover that in my 50s I can still develop technically -- right and left hand -- and solve problems that I couldn't even fathom when I was young.

The notion that one's skill level is bound by what we learned as children -- thankfully, that just isn't true in my experience. Adults have no ceiling other than the limits on time and energy for practice.
