I have just hit the two year mark, about a week ago, since the beginning of my first violin lesson. I am 17 (late starter I know =P, unfortunately my family isn't very music oriented more athletic) and about half way through Suzuki Book 4. Through this short span of playing I have developed a great passion for the violin.
My question is how long after beginning does it take to create a very crisp beautiful sound out of the violin.
When I play for friends at school or family at home they tell me I sound very well, and are jealous. However I recently recorded myself playing and I thought I sounded kinda poor, and was wondering what I could do to help my sound.
So here are my questions:
Roughly how long of playing the violin on average does it take to play with a crisp ear-pleasing sound?
What factors increase the beauty of the sound of a violin, technique-wise?
