Good evening,everyone!And here i am,finally.

After a year and a half of lurking,i decided to officially join in.

I've been playing the piano for a few years now,and then the sound of the violin captured me...after much contemplating,i took up lessons in April 2012 and am really glad i did so.Pierre's videos and this forum have really helped me understand many things and become more confident in my playing.So,thank you,you community of fiddlers,you!


My first violin was a cheap chinese electric one-i still have right here on my bed as i type.It served its purpose dutifully and still holds a special place in my heart,but by now it was time to move on to the real deal..and today  i got my proper,lovely,lovely sounding new acoustic violin.Needless to say i am over the moon.I look forward to continuing fiddling alongside everyone here!

welp,i think that is all for,cheers!cheers

Hi and welcome Teapot! I'm looking forward to see and hear more from you. I know how it feels to be captured by the sound of the violin. This forum is great, but I bet you know that already after all that lurking:)

I hope you will post a video so we can hear you play on your new violin :)  

Practice don't make perfect, practice makes permanent.

Greetings, Teapot! As a tea drinker myself, I love your handle.


You've been lurking for a year and a half? That must be some kind of record!


Congratulations on taking the plunge and getting a new violin. Best wishes with your new four-stringed friend and welcome -- now that you're officially out of the shadows -- to this friendly fiddler community.
