Past year my second daughter (8 yo) started with the violin at school. Her teacher told me about to take classes with her, so it would encourage her to practice. Although during that year we barely use de bow (this teacher starts with pizzicato) I felt in love with the violin. And then I decided to began with classes with a personal teacher. I didn’t read music, so I’m taking lessons too. And the great surprise is that I CAN play the violin… 😀 I’m 43 and since I was a child I liked so much the piano, that I always knew that some day I would study music and learn to play the piano… And suddenly I am here, with an instrument that I ever thought it was impossible to play. And I simply love it!
