This is my newest hobby and challenge. Learning the violin. Actually I am teaching myself... so hard! I have already had the joy of discovering errors in my technique that have improved both my comfort in holding the violin and the quality of my sound... I have only been practicing it for about half a week so that isn't saying much for how my sound is.
Just so you know:
This is an electric Cecilio Violin. I decided to go with an electric violin because I can put in earphones while I play and it greatly reduces the sound that the others in my household hear. This is a great bonus for them since I sound absolutely horrid at the moment.
