Started learning two months ago. My tutor is pleased with the speed of my progress right now. I think I wanted to learn a classical instrument at around the age of 5 or so because I loved classical music around then, nowadays more metal, but in recent years I found myself listening to the violins as a piece was playing. Thanks to a friend selling her brother’s school violin, sadly too small, I snatched up the chance to go for it. Now have a 4/4 sized one that a fellow parishioner kindly let me have from her collection and I have yet to put it down for more than a day’s theory learning.
