Hello, just wanted to say, that I am so glad to have found this site! I have always loved music and have played the piano when I was younger. I am 51 now and have always wanted to play the violin, I just love the tones and sounds of a violin. It gives me great encouragement that I am not alone wanting to learn at such a late stage in my life, but this time around I can say, it is just for my joy not for school or someone else's.

Welcome Cynthia.

Wow, we'll soon need to have a project just for us over 50's.  Lots of us learning now.

 

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
