Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
Hi everyone! I’ve been viewing Fiddlerman’s websites for a while now (I bought a violin from Fiddlershop back in 2013), and I participated in the last two projects (Amazing Grace & Game of Thrones).
I started playing on my own about 7 years ago after I retired from the Air Force. After a couple of years on my own, I decided I really wanted to take lessons. I was lucky enough to find a wonderful teacher, and have been taking weekly lessons with her ever since.
The first few years were hard—I think there were a few times when I stopped myself from throwing my violin out the window. If nothing else, I’ve learned patience (& humility).
I played in an amateur adult group for about a year and a half (New Horizons), but it was a bit of a drive, so I’m not doing that now. Good experience and great people there, though, for sure.
Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all.
SharonC - Hi, nice to hear from a fellow Air-Woman!
I never wanted to throw my violin out window, but I'm sure the only reason "I" didn't get thrown out the window (with my violin) is my BH came from a huge family (so he's good at ignoring me & the out-of-tune noise).
My BH and I met while stationed at 37 ARRS (Det 6) at McConnell AFB, Kansas (until end of 1979) - fixed & flew on Hueys!
Just started the 2nd year self-learning on my fiddle (I need to name this thing) - so I'm still struggling with EVERYTHING.
Grandkids? Music you like to play, now?
Don't forget to ask Fiddlerman for a "Project" Badge!
Enjoy the forum!
