    I cannot wait to get a violin and start practicing again. I learned the very basics when I was in college and didn’t own an instrument to keep up with it. I am SOOO glad I found this site and am finding it so helpful already

    That’s so great!! But learning by itself can be a challenge try to find a community orchestra in your area. This will give you a great opportunity to learn some great music with people who enjoy it just as much as you. If you don’t get in the first time this will give you a goal to reach which will make your practice more focused and meaningful

    Candas… I hope you don’t think you’re too old. I’m 50 and just started playing a little over a year ago. I’m DEFINITELY the oldest in my “class”. My teacher has my lesson scheduled at the end of the day, after all of her little kids. She says she looks forward to my lesson time because 1) I’m an adult and can focus, 2) we cover a lot more material than her younger students, thus move along faster, and 3) she gets to play the longer, more complicated pieces with me. We have a lot of fun. Our lesson time is over in no time and we have to make ourselves stop. Enjoy the learning process, people! No matter your age, it’s a gift to yourself and those who have the privilege of hearing you play.

    I am enjoying relearning my skills and learning some new skills as long as I stay relaxed about it and don’t pressure myself. I have to guard against impatience and becoming too self critical. I also have to stay in touch with my own feelings and tastes. Recently looked into playing with a community orchestra but when I went to download the music, I experienced stress rather than excitement. I listened to it played on YouTube; this verified that I did not like the music for listening. That, and the fact that it met on an evening that conflicted with another activity that is good for me helped me to decide to wait and not participate just yet. Maybe in the future!
