HELLO there ,

My name is Gabrielle and I am earnestly excited about learning the violin ,  yes indeed I am a beginner and nothing more than that I can credit myself with in the violin industry at least . I am also a fine writer ...I adore literature , reading , baking and playing the violin and of cource  star gazing . I am learning the violin by an instructor named mr.Prasoon from "B SHARP SCHOOL OF MUSIC " . I would love to master the violin even if it takes up the maximum amount of time I own , my apparent idol seems to be Karolina Protensko . She started playing the violin at the age of six . I started at the age of 10 ...I believe . I would be eternally grateful and indebted ( metaphorically so ) if anyone has any beginner violin tips to share . As for the time being , this website seems to have great easy to follow tutorials and sheet music I can follow along . I am progressing with violin slowly yet steadily and so far I have learnedbanana songs such as happy birthday which I played for my sister , twinkle little star , little brown jug , frere Jaques etc . I am learning these songs and many more from the book " ETA COHEN BOOK 1 ) . I am enjoying what songs it has to offer so far . Thank you and happy violin playing everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me just be another person to welcome you to the forum. I've been here for a little over 11 months and been learning how to play the viola for the same length of time. This is a great bunch of people here who have inspired me to keep at it. Hopefully you find it as wonderful as I've found.
