These are all great tips! I keep my violin…uh…I mean ‘fiddle’ on my desk. ..that way I see it when I check email etc…then practice on it while reading the news etc. Or if a good tune comes up on one if the sites I visit, I can try to play it. I try to play at least 30 min every day. Sometimes it’s more and some less…but at least a little every day. After 5 years, I still sound like a beginner!…which I guess I am!
