I'll be turning twenty in two weeks and I was wondering if twenty is too old to learn to play the violin? I've always heard that if you didn't start playing as a child you won't be able to learn as an adult because it's simply too difficult an instrument to learn but I never really believed it.
When I was a child I really wanted to learn but my parents couldn't afford it and I wound up learning to play the piano instead. I loved it, of course, but the want to play the violin never went away. Now that I'm an adult and am financially able I would really love to learn how to play.
I don't have any delusions that if I can learn at this age I'll be able to play professionally, I'm well aware of the years it takes to get to that level, I just want to play.
So, can I still learn or is it too late?
