Hi everybody! I'm sure this questions have been asked more than once here.
I play the piano, and I enjoy it a lot. I can play Mozart sonatas, Bach symphonies and some preludes and fugues from the Well Tempered Clavier, Scarlatti, Chopin... but I would like to try violin, as I consider it a very melodic and delicate instrument and it's something completely different. I wouldn't give up the piano, of course.
I'm serious with the projects I start, so I would be taking lessons, and I would try to reach an intermediate level after some years.
The questions are:
- To what extent do you think the piano can help me learning violin... and viceversa?
- What violin/bow/outfit/etc would you recommend me for starting?
- Has anybody combined the same instruments at the same time? If so, can you tell me something about your experience?
If you need more data about me, feel free to ask. I'm more than 20 and less than 30. I've finished a degree at the university and I'm preparing a bar examination for my future profession. And, as you may have guessed, English is not my primary language.
Thank you very much.
