Welcome! Hopefully this very helpful site will encourage you to pursue violin skill more vigorously as it has me! I, too was doing it just as a hobby for a few years, but now it has become my passion, and a huge part of my life! I ache all day for the feel of ‘my baby’ to be in my arms, and learn all i can of it in my spare moments!!! This site has been so encouraging to me, i hope you can also find the joy of music of violin as i have!
