First of all, thank you so much this resource and for all of the excellent discussions.
I am an adult beginner--47 yo and have begun violin lessons. I taught myself some guitar back when I was in high school and can read a very little bit of music but that's about it.
I get EXTREMELY self-conscious at my lessons to the extent that I am really shaken up afterwards and it takes me a day or two to recover well enough that I can actually pick up my violin and start practicing. Nothing at all to do w/my teacher. She's wonderful.
What do you as violin instructors do to help your adult beginners to feel less self-conscious. Any advice for me??????
Thanks very much!
