My name is Laurie. I am 60 years old and have recently begun learning the violin. I played clarinet for six years many years ago, which helps with reading music…it is coming back. I have had several private lessons with Michael which have gotten me off to a great start. I love bluegrass music, which contributed to my interest in the fiddle. I know I need the basics down before I can move into the bluegrass though. I am renting an instrument currently, but hope to get to Michaels to try his violins. First I am waiting to see if I win the contest he has going. ?
Hey Laurie, did you realize I’m over in Grand Rapids, MI? I’m not sure exactly where Nashville, MI is, but I’ve definitely heard of it. Maybe next time you are in Grand Rapids, you can come by and I’ll give you a lesson! Hope you enjoy the site and please post your questions if you have them. Good luck with the contest!
