Adult students get discouraged! I took up the violin 2 years ago at age 49, I always wanted to play. I think there's some expectation that it is only appropriate for children to take up an instrument, and that at age 51 I ought to be able to play like a 40 year veteran. Can anyone tell me how I can overcome the lack of encouragement?
