Just been looking around trying to find violins for my kids and have been reading and looking on the site for a while and have already been helped a lot.  Just starting on the violin again after putting down after playing clear through high school.  However, I was that kid at the back of the room hoping no one asked me to play alone so we'll see how relearning goes.  Hope to bring a few of my kids along for the ride so looking at violins.

From what I've seen so far, it looks like it might be a little more fun to learn more using internet forums and youtube than broad highschool lessons where they teach many students at a time.

Hopefully you get a much better experience online. :-D

Welcome @runningdoc! I hope you all have fun playing together :) I agree with @BaldBeardedViolinist - I'm certainly having more fun learning online than I did in classes with other students.

Welcome to the forum runningdoc,
Learning as an adult is very different from learning as a kid. You'll probably find that you won't worry about being asked to play alone this time around. ;)
Hope you find an instrument that makes you happy and your progress is good.
