I have had my third lesson now and am very pleased. I have to start doing incy wincy spider with the bow and we are working through the Abracadabra book. I can play twinkle twinkle little star, Old Macdonald and other simple tunes from the book.
I played my violin for a friend and she said that was good. I then played her the flute (I am grade 4). She said although the piece I played was more advanced on the flute, the violin was more impressive. (Not sure what that says about my flute playing...
This week I have to learn to play and read and play the notes G, A, B and C using the G string.
There is so much stuff on the internet about how adults can't learn violin and about how hard it is that I nearly didn't try. I am glad I did though. It gives an enourmous sense of achievement when you play a tune and it sounds like it is supposed to!
P.S. - I love my flute too.
