Hi Everyone!

New to the forum and excited to be here!

I am 5th generation (maybe more) violin player in my family. Violin is my 7th instrument. I started playing Alto Sax when I was 13 years old and I played through college and was in a successful jazz band. I also played French horn in my high school orchestra. From there, I tried every instrument I could get my hands on, and I could play just about everything so I started collecting instruments to play. My seven instruments are sax, French horn, flute, trumpet, Bandura, ukulele, and violin. I started playing violin when I turned 44 years old when my parents bought me a violin for Christmas. I was blessed to pick it up quickly. I only wish I had started on violin all those years ago...I just know I would have loved it my whole life. But, I sure do now and I enjoy every minute of it. My hope is to one day soon join our community orchestra which is excellent. 

So happy to be on board with you all!!!

@FiddleSticks -

Many fiddlers enjoy playing Jazz & Blues - some very famous Jazz Violinists, too!  Think you'll find it's a great instrument for this genre.
