Hi! I am Kanjiruminamoto here, I became 24 last June (a few days ago), I am a Digital Artist, an a recent violin player. I've started to learn how to play violin 2 years ago and I am under tutelage of a classical violinist and a member of Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, yep I am a Filipino, some people thinks that I maybe too late to learn how to play the instrument but it doesn't keep me from learning, now I am playing with the School chamber Orchestra and on Violin 2 section, I still need to work on my playing co's I know to reach a certain level I have to practice daily and learn more. there's so many room for learning and experience things, by playing with an orchestra which my teacher requires me, so that I can improve my sightreading skills and palying... :3
Nice to meet you all by the way!

Nice to meet you Kanji,

We look forward to reading your posts. Be sure to post your playing if you want tips and suggestions. We like that kind of thing here. Usually done via Youtube uploads and links here.
We have a few members from the Philippine's here though I haven't seen them in a little while. They are students as well.
If you think that 24 is late ask the players here that are learning in their 40's, 50's, 60's and even 70's.... Not sure who the oldest learner is.

See ya around,

Hey Kanjiru! Fellow Filipino here cheers

That's pretty cool, being taught by a member of the PPO. I've watched one of their performance last year when they played this Italian Requiem piece (I forgot the name lol) and they're excellent!

So where are you taking your tutorial/lessons? And which school orchestra are you playing with?  (Just curious~ I was planning to take classes before but unfortunately I never got the opportunity since I moved in here to the US for studies.tongue)
Lastly, you can never be too old to play the violin. I'm almost the same age as you (a few years younger thoughbanana) and I'm still just a beginner.

Goodluck on your lessons!thumbs-up
