Thought I'd introduce myself :) I'm Charlotte, and I just started taking violin lessons in my community college. It's always been my dream instrument.

I look forward to talking to and learning from you all (:

Hi Charlotte,

Welcome to these forums, which I just joined a few days ago. There are lots of videos and aids you can use. In the chat room, they actually talk about music most of the time. If you are just starting out, I highly recommend you get yourself a good private teacher if at all possible.

Good luck.

Duane

Hi Charlotte!

I'm myth, and I'm from Down Under too. aussie_flag

This forum and these people are wonderful, so I'm reasonably confident that you will enjoy it here.

And I'm a five-day n00b too, so we can all n00b together! :D dancinbunny

Nice to meet you, Charlotte! Welcome to the forum!

That's true of the forum, too...most of the time. :) BTW, if you happen to log onto the chat around dinner time, the discussion often turns to food. And, given all the time zones involved with members around the country and the world, it's always dinner time somewhere.

Anyway, I'm sure you'll like it here. Keep us posted on your violin progress.

Hi Charlotte... great to have you!  Don't forget to post a video early on in the process, it's great to be able to look back and see your progress.  Don't worry... there are people here that have one or two days of playing experience.

 

You'll get better and better and have more and more fun with the violin.  That's what I'm here for and it's exceeding my expectations!
