i hope this thread is for violin, too
I started playing the violin 9 month ago. I finished school that time and started my civilian service instead of going to the army (a good choice).
I wasn't interested in instruments before but i was good in hearing tones and a part of the school choir.
after school i had lots of free time and then i started to be jealous of my closest friends. They all played an instrument for a long time and had a band together.
So i looked around in my musical flavor. I heard Vanessa Mae that time and i liked her electric Violin. That instrument was something special.
I decided to give it a try and started violin lessons.
After listening Vanessa Mae i tried to find more Asian Artists and found Yui. I didn't know if i were able to play her songs but her music touched me so much that i ordered her songs all collection. I think her songs forced me to keep on learning.
you can image the rest of the story and its results are hearable here as a lot already know
in short form: my friends played instruments so i want to, too.
