It is so great to see so many adults picking up the violin. I’m 58, though I have been playing since about 10 years old. When I first started playing I had a younger brother who was 3. He loved me so much. When I practiced, he would open his mouth wide and make a crying face, big tears for his sister. But not a sound would come out. I think he must have thought I was crying too. Nice to meet you all! I have taught several adult beginners and hope I can be of some help to you all at some point!
