Welcome back to violin tutor pro. My name is Mike Sanchez and today we’re going to cover a topic as for as the violin goes. The question is, that’s a very popular question actually that I hear all the time, “Is it too late to learn the violin?” And normally that’s coming from adults that are looking to play the violin and have always to do it but just never had the desire or never seem to pick it up and do it. So a Lot of them is always wondering, “Hey, am I too old to learn the violin?”
So, just to introduce to you the concept, I mean a lot of people do start when they’re younger and violins are great instruments to learn when you’re young. It builds a lot of brain muscles and brain chemistry. And it’s a great instrument to learn but actually while you’re an adult, you’re actually more prone to learn the violin a lot quicker, a lot faster than if you were a child or teenager whatever. So I had recommended actually for people to learn the violin as an adult and that could be any age in particular could be someone in the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s. I’ve actually had a violin student that was in her 80’s and she was still looking to learn the violin which you know bless her heart for having a desire. I mean she has that will to always want to learn more something else.
So everyone has the reasons for why to play violin and I think at any age it can really serve great purpose for a lot of different goals that people have. So, as far as a question goes, “Is it too late to learn the violin?” Absolutely not. The sooner the better. As a kid, as an adult, I think it’s very beneficial for a lot of different reasons. So, if you want to learn how to play the violin, I do have a software package on my website. You can learn everything from beginning to end if you never really picked up music before. I will teach you everything you need to know about the violin. The website is violintutorpro.com.
