Is it late to play a violin?

by Annie

Hi Marie,
I have a question to ask, is it ever too late to play a violin? In my school everyone starts at fourth grade. I was more cautious. After two years I finally agree to start learning violin. Eventually I was the only sixth grader(11 year old) to play the beginning strings. I felt embarrassed and silly among learning with little 4th and 5th grade kids. Is it ever too late to learn how to play an instrument?

Hello Annie,
I have seen it done successfully. What I've seen happen is the student takes private lessons for awhile and then joins the group later on.

And no, I don't think it's ever too late to start learning a musical instrument! The point isn't to become a professional musician, but to have fun, meet great people, and play great music! You can do that at almost any level of ability with violin.

Thanks for writing!
