I took violin lessons for almost a full school year when I was in elementary school.  But after I told my teacher I wanted to play Rock Violin - and she told me the only thing you could play with violin was classical - she kicked me out of the class! 

I always regretted not learning.  So since this year is a milestone birthday for me I decided to buy myself a violin and pick up where I left off.  So glad I found Fiddlerman.

Hi Ginnysg.  Bah, one can play all sorts of music on a violin.  More likely the teacher just had no idea how to go about teaching how to play rock on it.

Welcome to the forum.

Very happy you found it as well. It upsets me that some teachers discourage their students that way. If a student tells me that they want to play Rock n Roll, I just ask what kind of rock they want to play and then we work towards that goal.

Look forward to your future posts.
