I've enjoyed classical music my whole life (currently 18 years old) with the Violin being my personal favorite. I've always wanted to play, but I thought it would just be too much of a luxury/cost too much/I would be too busy. Last year, I was told by the doctors that I wouldn't be able to do anything. Basically I can only sit up for about an hour before I have to lay down the rest of the day due to pain, and I cannot fix it because of the risks. So I am bed bound for life. That's when it finally hit me. Maybe I have a chance in recreational violin?
Before I even consider this, I wanted to learn a bit, especially in my case, if it's even possible. So my question is: Is is possible to play the Violin whilst laying down? With my conditions, I can indeed sit up for about an hour, but one hour of practice every 5 or so, doesn't sound very efficient.
If this is possible, I will start saving up. I did some research prior to posting this, and most articles said something around $200-$300 range is a good place to start, which won't be hard at all. It will just take me about a year or two to save up that much, since with my conditions, I wont be able to get a job. All the more time to learn what I'll need too. But I digress.
