I love to play in the late evening after all of my chores are done and I can totally relax into the music. I usually listen to some songs that I want to improve on and then dive in and play them concentrating on the quality of sound I produce. How about you???
With two grandchildren in our home that take naps and go to bed early, I play when they are awake. I have a wall mount for violin, so it is always there ready to go. All I have to do is tighten the bow.
