Hello! I'm writing you from Moscow, Russia. This website is very helpful. So, the idea to become a part of this community seems very interesting to me. Just to be concise about things that aren't exactly relate to the subject - I'm a student (studying law at the university). My name is Daniel. Nice to meet you!

When I was a child I had a dream to play violin. The wish, however, was ignored by my parents. Then I became a teen and forgot about violin at all. I was interested in skateboarding and bmx (small nice bicycles to do tricks). I was also involved in other kinds of sport, such as swimming and visiting gym. There was no place to violin. Now I am 19 years old. Just 3 weeks ago I remembered my dream! My first idea was: "why is it only a dream, but not an aim?" From that moment I started to find information about violin, just kind of first meeting. Then I decided that I will play violin! Nearly 12-13 days ago I came to the music shop. I was interested in cheap (but not cheapest) violin produced by Romanian fabric. I took it in my hands and for next 10 minutes I became "popular" among visitors of the shop because of its hell scratching!!! :) I was almost rock star hahah.That was a moment when I faced with first difficulties of playing violin. I'm not afraid of them. When you have an aim but not a dream everything become easier to achieve! And I following my purpose spending 6-12 hours per day to play violin (exams were successfully passed and now I have a few absolutely free weeks). The sound seems now much more smooth than at the first day 😀

Those are 2 great statements, if everyone took that to heart their dreams would materialize into something attainable and especially in music that would be such a great thing to see.  All the way from Moscow, technology still amazes me at times!  Speaking to people around the world :) .  Welcome aboard and congrats on starting your learning adventure!
