Play the Violin


  1. I learned to play the violin through daily lessons with a very strict teacher. It didn’t take long for me to lose interest and even begin hating the instrument. I think teaching myself would have worked much better for me (though I’m over 40, so there was no Youtube back then). I have learned over my life that I learn things much better when I study them on my own, at my own pace.

    • Isn’t it interesting how we are all different? You found out that YOU are actually a better teacher for you and I think that is fantastic. Thank you for sharing your story, Steven.
