Hi, i'm a mom of a special 12 year old player and recently found this site. Little Sonic has been playing for 3 1/2 years through school orchestra and is moving up to a full size violin. It's been quite the whirlwind of learning and investigating information on violins to make good choices for a purchase. And I must give huge props to everyone at the Fiddlershop for their help and guidance. 🙂

At this point all I can really do is pull the bow across the strings to help tune his violin (which he doesn't need anymore) but since I'm in charge of the purchasing department, I guess it's time for mom to become more educated.

I'm here to read, learn, and occasionally ask the newbiest of newb questions.

Question number one.....Is there a cool 'Violin Parent' badge??  :p

@Sonic ,

Welcome to the forum. Sometimes violin parents end up as fiddlers - I took up violin again (after about 20 years away from it) after my son started Suzuki classes last year. A Violin Parent badge is a great idea!

I'm all for the badge. The only problem is that it's not applicable to all the visitors here. 🙁
Very happy to have you here Sonic.
Thanks for the positive feedback about Fiddlershop. 🙂

Look forward to reading more of your future posts.

Well, maybe I can make myself a pin on button that says 'Little fiddler mom.' 🙂

And I must thank you guys again, Little Sonic was beyond thrilled to see and hear the video of the violin you all picked out for him and I can't wait to hear him play it!

Than you everyone for the warm welcome. 🙂

Little Sonic is playing well on his new girl that arrived this week and we both are really enjoying her quality sound and deeper darker voice. She sounds lovely! 

Even though I don't play (yet) I enjoy watching the tutorials and seeing the fun projects here. And I'm looking forward to getting to know the community and maybe learning to play myself.
