When I was younger, i actually wanted to play the cello. But my sister quit violin and my mom insisted I just play the violin instead because it’d be easier to lug on the school bus everyday. Back then, I played my violin well enough to be first chair in the orchestra. It was only til recently I cared to pick it up again and am realizing how much more I have to learn!
Other than its beauty in appearance and sound, what most intrigues me to get back into it is the level of skill you must reach to play well. I don’t expect to play at a professional level but I think I’d enjoy the journey there and hope to come close to sounding like a pro!
One day, I’d hope to share the skill I gain and music I play with others.
If Music is a universal language…then I hope to be fluent in violin. 🙂
