First, thank you for welcoming me.   Being a member of this group of instruments is a very special honor.  Strings are the most challenging of all the instruments in the orchestra and I am proud to be called a violinist.  

Yes! You read my name right.  I am a Choppin.  With 2 ‘p’s.  I am related to the composer, Frèdèric Chopin.  The extra ‘p’ comes from family lines when Frèdèric had moved to France. 

So music literally runs through my veins.  Many members of my family are musicians and I have been a musician since elementary school. 

However, I have only been playing violin since February this year.  

But I LOVE my violin.  And I LOVE playing my violin!

I am a beginner.  I hope I can learn as much as I can from the experience here!

Hi Pete,

Great introduction story 🙂  Hard to not have musical ambitions with Chopin in your family tree.

Thank you @CharlieStrings 

Glad to be here!  I play very little piano, by the way.  LOL!

Great jeans to say the least. 🙂
Don't let that put extra pressure on your learning ability. Even if you love what you are doing, and you are doing well, set goals rather than expectations.
Many ambitious learning instrumentalists put so much pressure on themselves that they get depressed that they are not progressing as fast as they would like, or intended to.
