I'm 24 years old, have been playing guitar for almost ten years now and am eager to learn classical violin, despite the fact that a lot of people seem to think that it's impossible for adults to learn properly. Several times I gave the idea up because of that fact...but now I'm just gonna try it.
My question to you is: as an adult learner who has experience with music, how far would I be able to get, considering I still have some 60 years ahead of me( LOL)? My absolute dream is to play amazing stuff from people like J.S Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Dvorák, et cetera. I'm aware that it's not going to be concertist level and I also know it's not going to happen tomorrow either. But let's say, some good years from now, would I be able to play the amazing partitas, symphonies and so forth?
The sky is the limit for you!!!! Go all the way!!! Let nothing or no one stop you.... Practice and get a good teacher!!! And practice and learn. Enjoy and listen to violin day and night... Oh yes and practice.
There is no limitation... Don't let your mind stop you ... And practice.

It's a big mistake to let other people tell you what you can or can't accomplish. It's an even bigger mistake to believe that they may be right. Only you can test the limits of your ability and you can always, always push yourself much farther than even you yourself think you are capable of.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
Welcome @Ewerton - the posts from Toni, Pierre and Uzi above have said it all much better than me.
My only regret is not actually having started until the age of 62 - so much music, so little time LOLOL !!!! And like you, coming at it with a "reasonable" level of guitar playing and "basic" musical understanding gives us a flying start. You'll do great !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
