i decided at age 25 to pick up a violin for the first time, after having looked @ playing violin as a dream that i'd never pursue. it's now been a couple months since i started, and a month since i found an excellent private instructor who i take lessons with once a week. i couldn't be more happy about my decision to start playing, and am so excited for what's to come! it's so inspiring to have found this site, especially seeing how many other adult beginners there are floating around, as well as teachers with experience instructing adults. i'd LOVE to hear some of your stories! when did you start? what made you decide to finally pick up the instrument? what did/do you find most difficult during the learning process? what's your biggest accomplishment thus far? any advice for a fellow beginner? i can't wait to hear your stories!
