My wife played violin for 10 years when she was younger. Then life intruded, marriages, kids and other priorities. She hasn't played in 30 years.
A couple weeks ago, the band leader at church noticed her reading music for choir and asked her if she played an instrument. She confessed that she had played violin years ago. So she broke out her violin and took it in for new strings, new hair for the bow and other maintenance that comes with spending years in its case.
Once she got it back, she realized that things that were once second nature are not so any more. She's committed to practicing every day, but I wonder what would be the best practice for her.
I admit that I know NOTHING about playing an instrument of any kind. But I would like to help her in any way that I can.
Can anyone recommend any regimen and/or pieces of music that would be best to regain her old form?
