I've wanted to learn since I was a kid, but it wasn't really an option then.  Now that I have kids, I'm going to try to learn with them as they learn.  Wish me luck!  Just got our violins last week, and so far it's been a pleasant challenge.

Best of luck, Wookieman! I think it's really nice that you're learning along with your kids. You can keep each other motivated. Please keep us posted on your progress!

My kids are 8 and 6.  We try to keep it fun (my wife tries to keep it quiet).  I will post a vid when we get to the point that we are playing something together.  Practice can sometimes look a little like this though:jimi-hendrixconcertina-4198trumpet-1271bagpipes-1254violin-1267violin-bangsmiley-face-punchinglumpy-2134
