For a 40 plus age, started less than 3 years ago in realizing a unfullfilled childhood dream, I love playing violin and have been playing a lot (yes, I have a very supportive husband). I have my weekly lessons with a wonderful young man who can almost be my son; have a weekly small group playing session in the evenings and joined a local orchestra I think I can pass grade 6 with no problem. Should I take exams at all? I won't enjoy it by seeing how my son going through it. I wonder how far can I go? Till what age can I play? I thought of starting learning piano so that I can at least play music until I say good bye to this world one day (still different, because I love violin, not piano). Like to hear about your thoughts, expecially those late starters like me. Thank you!
