I’m just shy of 63 and am attempting the violin at this point. I have played guitar for many years and learned some piano on my own and even the banjo for a year. Now is the time to make some noise. wow..this is a little tough !. after one week i am sounding a little better. The first week was quite embarrassing. thankfully my wife was out at work while i was following the first 4lessons.
I do find it quite odd that on the second day of practicing , i looked out the window from my condo complex and saw THREE MOVING VANS there !
What a coincidence ! Imagine 3 families moving out ON THE SAME DAY !!!!!
Hopefully i will pursue this… I record songs (some covers.. and some compositions) using various computer music softwares (Sonar, Fruity Loops, Garage band. and now a few IPAD apps).. and i am looking forward to incorporate violin into the mix.

Hey Bichon! Welcome to the Violin Tutor Pro community! I’m the owner of the website, and am glad to see that you decided to post. I encourage you to post any questions you have about the violin in our forum and invite you to sign up for a webinar, where you can meet other students that are at the same point you are, and learn in a class setting. So far they have gotten great response and have a lot of students in their 60’s.June 25, 2015 at 10:01 pm #3274

My name is David Inman. I too play guitar and piano. I purchased a cheap violin about a year ago. I thought, “Hey, I play guitar, the violin can’t be much harder” Wrong!! After struggling for a couple of months trying to learn on my own, I took about 2months of private lessons. I never once saw the teacher play the violin. She hurt her neck and couldn’t play. She could only play the “Air Violin” So, I quit lessons with her. Then I found Michael’s online webinar classes and they have really helped me a lot. Hope to see you in one of his classes soon.
