Don’t abandon your dream to learn the violin or viola! Students of ALL ages are welcome! Perhaps previous time, family, career, or financial commitments prevented you from taking up a stringed instrument. Or, maybe you had once played long ago but begged your parents to allow you to quit, only to regret your decision later!
Maybe you find yourself a bit overwhelmed as the practice coach for a new beginning student. Many parents/caregivers will WISELY choose to begin their own lessons on the instrument, starting even 6-12 months BEFORE the child begins, in order to fully understand the instrument and be a better support and influence once they begin. This is strongly recommended, and while perhaps somewhat unconventional, has not been a regretted decision yet!
