    A different take on your question - i started violin lessons at primary school when I was 8, and at 10 was good enough to play 2 solos at the end of term concert. I never learnt to sight read! I knew which note on the stave meant first finger on the ‘d’ string and so on but I didn’t know the names of the notes.
    I presume I would have had to learn if I wanted to progress further, but nearly 2 years is a pretty good grounding, so it’s possible you could pick it up on your own.
