Hi, name is Jason and I am new to the violin. since a young child i always wanted to learn the violin (sort of like everyone on this site). But with little encouragement from those around me I put it on the back burner. I’m 44 now and decided it wasn’t going to be any easier when i’m 80 so why not now! i’ve been playing now for about 2 months and am addicted! i sort of have the luxury of time for the next few months so i probably practice 2-3 hours a day plus watch/read any lessons online throughout the day. I’ve found this site recently and already I feel the benefits in my playing – so thank you. I’m looking forward to exploring more and seeing what I can find! thanks for all the work you put into helping others!!!
