I haven't started playing yet, and have just been doing research into how to go about starting, when something sort of came to mind. I've noticed that a lot (most?) of people play violin while standing up, and do a lot of bobbing and weaving. Being in a wheelchair and all (my upper body strength is fine), I can only play sitting down, so I'm curious if this affects/limits your playing in any way. It's one of the reasons I didn't continue with piano, since you need to do pedal work at some point in time (that, and I just bored of it as a child... string instruments always caught my interest more).
