I played the violin from age 9-12 in a typical school program.
At 40 I decided to try the viola after hearing one when I was younger and loving the deep sound.
So, got one and started lessons only to have to stop 8 weeks later due to a very unexpected move.
5 years later, I’m finally settled in, got an electric viola so I could feel more comfortable practicing without others hearing me, and dove back in two weeks ago. Loving it and planning on uploading a video soon for some feedback. (:
