Hello, I'm new


Recommended Posts

Hi group. My name is Pete and I'm so glad to find you!

I've been playing violin for almost a year and since I have short fingers, I'm having a lot of trouble.

I'm hoping some of you can help me and maybe we can all learn something along the way.

I'm a 35 year old, self employed portrait artist. I use mainly acrylics and oils.

Although I paint a realistic and detailed portrait of my clients, my paintings are often too tight and controlled.

I am finding that my violin playing is much the same.

I just wanted to say hello and to test my registration here, so I look forward to meeting you all online soon.

Hi Pete!

Welcome to discuss about violin playing. I am sure that you get good answers here. I am quite new violinist as well. I have played just a few months and I am 22 years old. I have played piano for several years and took singing lessons too.

Hi Pete

You'll find lots of useful hints and tips here. I started to learn violin 2 years ago (at 44), and there is certainly a wealth of help and info amongst Maestronet buddies.

Check out the old "Intros / Bios" string and I think there was another getting to know you type string where you will find we have all introduced ourselves.
