Hello all, I have just started learning to play the violin at the age of 31! So far I have had three lessons and I love it
I have no prior musical experience, can't read music and remember hating music at school! I don't know why though because now I find it fascinating, I love reading the theory books and discovering new things.
Before I had my first lesson I wasn't sure if I would be having any so I just picked up the grade 1 book assuming that was the place to start and muddled through the songs. I enjoyed learning those, but the problem is that because I can't read music it takes an age to play through the first time and then I just remember it.
After reading through the posts here you seemed like a friendly bunch so I thought I would introduce myself and maybe head over to strings when I get stuck!
Well, that's me, I look forwards to getting to know you all
