Hello from Wild and Wonderful WV, located in the northern panhandle just a 30 minute drive from downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
Learning the violin is my first "bucket list" goal, having just reached the age of 65. Always admired the string sound and thought I need to do something new and challenging.
My husband of 42 years was surprised and puzzled when I announced my intentions last weekend. (Warned him my 2nd choice was the harp.. Dah. Anyone old enough to remember Harpo in those old b/w movies?)
I am a bit concerned with the part of learning to read music - as I found it really overwhelming in grade school music class. Just finished printing Fiddlerman's Beginners Etudes-Studies while waiting for Santa to deliver my violin and supplies. So I guess I'm serious about this project.
My other hobbies are cooking, gardening indoors & out, genealogy, and World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2.
Truly am soooo very grateful for this site.

Welcome from Alaska.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Greetings from Arkansas. That's an interesting mix of hobbies you've got.
I remember Harpo from an episode of I Love Lucy.
Never mind maneuvers, just go straight at them.
