I usually practice in the evening after supper. It could be anywhere from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. I try to practice before the kids go to bed whenever possible since I can then play without a mute.
Cynthia: I’m somewhat similar. I want to learn violin music but I also want to fiddle. To allow this, I usually practice two songs at a time – one that’s more traditionally violin and one that’s a fiddle tune.
