    Hi all and thank you for the welcome.
    Tomorrow I am calling my mom in Minnesota and checking to see if she still has the violin that played in 4th grade! (Mind you I am 55 now). I am so enjoying the videos and the community page on Facebook. I have a current shoulder issue and am ambidextrous. Wondering if I can choose to learn to play left handed ( holding bow in left hand?) Is that done?

    I’m learning both ways. It can definitely be done, although I would recommend using a left-handed violin.

    I didn’t know that there was left handed violins! Good to know. I am wondering about the disparity in prices of violins. What are the differences? I guess probably the same as with guitars…the manufacturer name..maybe the quality of the wood. I am researching a bit to learn more.

    You might consider renting a violin if the one you had as a child is not available or not full sized. Micheal has a good arrangement where rental fees apply toward purchase if you decide to buy one.
