I am seeing a lot of seniors taking up the violin. Good for you,.I took violin for one semester, and cello for one semester in college in the 1970’s. I won a mute on this site, and then had to buy a violin. I also play piano and sax. I haven’t retired yet, but I am able to find time for practice. I have really enjoyed playing, and it keeps my old mind sharp. When the hair came loose at the tip of the bow, I told Sanchez, and he sent a free replacement bow. I have found lots of material on this site to challenge me. I am almost ready to start on the webinars.
