As a 32 year old, I'm seriously considering studying the violin. I've loved the violin ever since I was a child, but unfortunately, I have not yet had the opportunity (or made the opportunity) to learn. There are some that say it's never too late. Others warn adult learners of potential frustrations. Some have even said that instructors aren't all that motivated to teach adults. I'm just wondering if I've missed my opportunity. The only music experience I have is 8 years of choir and that didn't even teach me how to read music properly. I'm looking to learn simply for my own enjoyment. What are some of the experiences with other adult students? When did you start your study? Were you able to find a teacher that doesn't think "negatively" towards adult beginners?
