Wow! You must be a really good violin player! I started when I was three and I’ll be 50 next year. I don’t really remember much until around middle school when I was going through the Suzuki books with a great teacher. I was also in the school orchestra and the conductor had us play “Light My Fire” by the Doors. I prefer classical as by base genre and like to fool around with rockabilly with my boyfriend. My parents bought me a really good violin when I could play a full sized one, and I just love playing it. You’re right, a good instrument makes all the difference. I hope you entered the violin giveaway because the Tia Bruna looks like a fantastic instrument!
