I'm just getting started - looking for a violin and arranging for a teacher.  I've had some music background and can sight read a bit.  Plan on taking weekly lessons and practicing daily.


What got me thinking of the violin was when I came across a young girl playing the song "May it be" from Lord of the Rings on U-Tube.  I was hooked.  My question is - just how difficult is that piece of music and how long before I could play it for my own enjoyment (not professionally by any means)  I'm setting that song as my goal and would like to get some idea on the time involved, assuming a student with average abilities.

How long it takes you to learn that piece is entirely dependent on how hard and long you work combined with the amount of talent you have. Just don't expect things to happen over night. You must first build the foundation and make it strong. Glad to hear that you have a goal. We'll help you achieve it.
