Hello, My name is Sonja. I have wanted to play violin since I was 10. My mom, thought it would be too difficult to learn. I ended up playing the clarinet. Now that I am over 40 and have a child approaching 10, I thought it best to giver her a wide range of musical instruments to choose from. I have a keyboard, guitar, clarinet, flute, harmonic (basic and double w/second harmonic slide), and just recently added the VIOLIN. I have been looking at the youtube site, and saw the amazing videos helping me learn how to play and learn alongside my daughter. I thank you for putting so much effort into helping those of us who cannot or do not afford to pay for lessons. I am hoping to gain enough knowledge and prowess to perform for my family and live my dream that I have had since childhood. Every time I would listen to the orchestra in Chicago, I imagined myself playing. I may not realize that dream now, but at least I can fill my home with beautiful music. I hope to gain much wisdom with your help....Thanks,
I was looking at your user name, very cool. Are you a librarian, or a bookworm?
You should pick up the violin pretty rapidly, once you figure out some of the physical part of it. I played as a child, then no musical instrument for 36 years and now I have been playing for 3 months or so. I love it, you will too.
Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I have been out for the past few days, and am flabbergasted at all the incredible people who replied. Once again thank you. Fiddlerman, I am happy I was able to teach you something.
I have not picked up the violin in about a week. Thinking I need to practice a little more than every now and then and never. I can't learn without practicing. Have not been making time. It is strange how a person tends to overlook something, and then remembers how easily it is to forget. I have to start all over again, oof.
Oh my goodness, how time flies when I am having fun learning the Violin. It has been nearly two month months since I began experiencing the new love of my musical endeavors. To think that I am challenging myself to excel and then to find that Fiddlerman has also asked me to edify him as well, with a new word in each post I send. Hmmm very sneaky there.
