Hello! こんいちは! 안녕하세요! 你好!

 

My name is Adaleona, but many of my friends call me -A, Adale, Ada, or sometimes Leona. I'm a somewhat beginner violinist and violist, with love to the bass guitar and guitar as well. As you may tell, I love Asian languages and am currently learning Japanese and Korean despite being a native English speaker. Despite Japanese being a headache all in itself, I still love the language and want to continue learning it until I can finally yell at fellow friends for without them knowing why. 

Asides from loving languages, I do have a certain fascination to how violins and such are made, and am praying that I will be able to gain a job at a nearby violin shop that owns a genuine Stradivarius. I have a great interest in these instruments and enjoy learning about them daily. I hope you all can teach me something on my journey as a fellow musician!

Welcome Ada / Leona !  @Adaleona - I'm sure you will enjoy the forum - lots of information regarding playing, maintenance and construction of the instrument.  

Enjoy thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Welcome and I hope that you can follow your dream.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

I see that you two fellow musicians are from Ohio! Hello fellow Ohioians~

 

Thank you for the warm welcome and I'll try and share my experience learning the violin and viola! As well as on my adventure to hopefully becoming an apprentice as a violin luthier!

 

Thank you for the support!
