I think some people feel hesitant to try to play the violin even if they are interested in it.
And I hear some opinions that it is quite difficult for us to play it unless we start to practice from childhood.
If you want to be a professional player, it is true.
But if you want to enjoy it as a hobby or an activity, I recommend you to start the first lesson early to enrich your life with music.
It is a true that you can improve your skill easily when you start as young as possible.
It is very important for beginners to learn the appropriate posture and how to playing. Because wrong postures and positions make us tired and prevent from playing well.
Each person has each physique.
So I would like to teach as the most appropriate way for you.
When your playing skill reach the higher level, you may feel harder and take a longer time to improve it. I think sometimes it occurs in both your sikll and mental.
I have experienced these sufferings. So I understand them.
I am happy to help you to solve those problems.
