Hello everyone!  I'm a beginner with the violin.  I grew interested in violin when I was doing some research regarding the mechanics of the instrument (I was writing a book in which one of the characters is a musician; I'm a writer-- hence the username)...and I realized how splendid the violin is.  So here I am!  I also know how to play the guitar and piano.

It has been a while since I was last tangled up in writing, but I have been there.   ;)

I do miss writing, and do need to get back to it at some point.

For me, getting into the violin was out of nostalgia, as well as desire. I had played in elementary school, but had to give it up. It took many, many, years for me to finally pick up playing again, but here I am. Enjoying myself immensely.   :)

At four months in now, I think my playing skills may actually be better than when I was a kid. I had about a year and a half of lessons back then, but I was far less dedicated to practicing at home than I am now. Although I lack an instructor these days, I do have dedication, drive, and access to a lot of information here online, and in the books I have purchased.

I hope you enjoy your violin playing too, and welcome to the board.   :)

Welcome to the forum! Have fun playing the violin!

I'm a writer, too. So is my sister (who's the better writer) plus she's the violinist out of the two of us. I'm a beginning violist.
