Hi and welcome. I started the violin about 4 months ago at 52 so am glad that you also have an interest. I did not know if I would stick with it or not, but now seem to be hooked! Let us know if you start some lessons or at least get to pick up a violin and make some sounds with it. It is very affordable to rent a violin, and rent-to-own is also an option, and I believe that Superior Violins has affordable payment plans. Best of luck!
