I am shy about anyone hearing me play. It is like I become emotionally cluttered when others are around. I have taken care of so many people for so many years it is hard to turn it off when anyone is around. Also,I have a son with severe autism that can be sensitive to sounds so i have to work around that. However, I am determined to get past these issues, and am setting up a time to practice via Skype with my friend, Kelly, who is also picking up her violin again. We will follow the Violin Pro videos for awhile. Once I have got myself sorted out I want to get into the program with a mentor.
