This old man seems to say the odds are stacked up so high against adult learners that they have no chance to ever become decent players.
On his website (j-krakenberger dot com) he also appears to be saying that Spaniards can't learn the violin well either.
Is he right or is he nuts? Are "late" starters "problem" cases?
To me it seems this guy is a failure as a teacher and he is projecting his frustration onto his students and the world in general.
Anyway, the reason I am posting this is that I hope for some experienced teachers here to write strong rebuttals in order to neutralise the discouragement that this sort of disinformation has on some adult learners (as evidenced by previous adult learner threads).
