i'm a new member in this forum, i adore Classical music, and i just wanted to begin posting in this topic cos i have just started learning Violin.
i'm 21, i've been told that it's a difficult instrument, even hard to learn at this age, but i think it's wrong, i'm making a progress in learning, .. it must be the passion for music and the instrument itself.
hi! i'm a violinist and a pianist myself and i tell you! i've been through every hell you're going through, lol!
just hang on in there. tell me, what is your violin method? the suzuki or the traditional wolfhart, sevcik...? i might be able to help you since i'm also teaching the violin. best regards!!
I'm not a string player, but from my knowlege violin is usually the first instrument you play if you start strings. Reasons of similar fingering maybe, I dont know. But thats usually what you start with and then after a year or so move on to the others or stay violin. Hope that helps.
I`m a recently retired ex-pro player and you guys are the luckiest people in the world. You have it all before you and nobody is going to have high expectations of you, make unreasonable demands of you or otherwise try to control your musical whimsey.
I am rediscovering the freedom of playing to suit myself for the first time in about 50 years and loving it.
You can get as good as you choose to get and you`ll enjoy it at any level, even the frustration!
Lucky old you.
