Cynthia, your post really made me laugh! The master bathroom is also my practice room (with the bedroom door shut). I have been playing for three years now. My husband gave me a violin for our 30th anniversary. Sometimes, I wonder how he can stand hearing me….it is hard for ME to hear me! I can play much more complicated music now, but I still sound like Jack Benny most of the time. I practice every day and am waiting for the magic to happen. Truth is, I love it so much, that I am willing to keep on keepin’ on. I wish you the best of luck with your music!
