Hey Laura! You are in good company here! And I wanted to tell you, it may be a surprise to learn, your story of finding a family violin in the attic and starting to learn music over age 50 is a common theme! If it were a song, we’d all know it well! Don’t feel shy around here. We’re not all judge-y and critical. We help each other and learn from each other. I want to encourage you, if you have Facebook, to join one or all of Michael’s violin learning groups, especially the Adult Learners group.
