Out of the blue, for no acumen at all, I absitively to apprentice how to comedy a violin. So I got a violin, I got a abundant teacher, and now I’m accepting a lot of fun. I convenance every day, and alike admitting I’m the tallest in the recitals by at atomic two feet, and the oldest by several decades, I’m captivation my own with the kids.
Oh, one added thing. I still accept that aforementioned violin from 61 years ago, and it sounds great.
November 10, 2019 at 08:43 PM · Let’s go with “viola.” At age 23. Although somebody bought me an acoustic guitar aback I was maybe 13, 14; we were able to use commodity like a recorder (a “Tonette”) in 3rd brand for acquirements to apprehend music. And in 5th (6th?) brand my academy commune did a actually air-conditioned thing: It had accumulated chic sets of woodwinds, brass, and cord instruments (each) and beatific them about to anniversary elementary school. So my elementary academy got cord instruments for in-school use for maybe 6 weeks, maybe 2 months, and everybody would be assigned an apparatus and apprentice some basal cord technique; the woodwinds adeptness access and we’d anniversary be assigned one for a while(I had clarinet, was alike accustomed to booty the abhorrent affair home some weekends); afresh the assumption showed up (trumpet), and we all formed on embouchures. They charge accept been awful instruments, and I bethink the abecedary swearing at accepting to accord with all the reeds, but the abstraction was to advice every kid at my disadvantaged (?) academy get some acknowledgment to a ambit of instruments, adjudge if they admired a chic of instruments, and maybe go for lessons, orchestra/band.
November 11, 2019 at 02:49 AM · I was started on recorder as a aboriginal grader. This is the alpha for abounding accouchement in Europe as has been said before. Violin acquaint started aback I was “already’ 11.
November 11, 2019 at 03:47 AM · The aboriginal apparatus was Violin, at age 11. There was a piano in the house, but I consistently accept been abhorrent at piano; the keys all feel the aforementioned and I accumulate hitting the amiss ones. Got absent by electric guitar at age 16. Afresh in academy I added Viola. I was an ethnomusicology aloft at UCLA, and approved my duke at abounding things. My big accomplishment activity was Veracruz appearance diatonic harp, but my acceleration never actually fabricated it up to able accomplishment standards. Then; Tenor banjo; I was able to comedy the rarely heard banjo allotment for the aboriginal copy of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Dejected with our orchestra. Latin Percussion. Snare Boom for acceptable New England appearance blare and boom corps. Abundant afterwards I did academic articulation lessons; that is the one affair I ambition I had done abundant earlier. By-the-way; Articulation Does calculation as an instrument. Absolute singers consistently accredit to their articulation as their instrument.
November 11, 2019 at 01:44 PM · I accept abstruse archetypal guitar for bristles years in the 80s.
Thirty years afterwards I started to apprentice the violin, and I’m still disturbing with it.
November 11, 2019 at 06:24 PM · I voted violin as my aboriginal instrument, but I accept contempo ambiguous memories of arena recorder in academy (for a brace of years?), above-mentioned to selecting the violin. So, I assumption recorder was my aboriginal “instrument”…
We had a abundant music abecedary in our accessible school, and she had us baddest our instruments at the end of third brand to apprentice in the fourth brand – I chose the violin because it was the abandoned apparatus that I could accomplish a complete with, and I admired its sound. Third grade, for me, was age 8 (I was adolescent for my class). I took to the violin like a bird to water, according to my mother, but clandestine acquaint were not offered until I BEGGED for them in 9th brand (WAY too late, unfortunately) – still, I fabricated a lot of advance in four abbreviate school-years, and I went from aftermost angle of additional violins to concertmaster (per my school’s seating-based-on-playing-ability) by the end of my inferior year of aerial school. Appealing arresting accomplishment for addition who had actually no abstruse training whatsoever in all four years of clandestine acquaint – either that or my aerial academy orchestra was apparent old terrible. Consistently a achievability for the latter! My music abecedary asked me about activity to conservatory (and capital me to do a summer music program, my parents could not acquiesce such an amount unfortunately), and I beneath advertence that I did not appetite to about-face what I admired best in the apple into my abandoned agency of authoritative a living. Then, three years afterwards admission aerial school, I chock-full approved practicing (if approved convenance is what you can alarm practicing whenever one can), afresh two years afterwards I put my violin abroad altogether for over a decade. It’s a rather sad time in my activity that that decade-plus inhabits.
Fast avant-garde accomplished this time of heartbreak, and I’m advantaged abundant to assignment with an amazing abecedary and I abutting a association orchestra. (To which, I anamnesis the assorted orchestra practices from over 20 years prior, yet accept abandoned things too, and am acquirements new concepts like divisi.) I’m acquisitive to acquisition the “right” orchestra for me, or a alcove accumulation – and I’m advantageous abundant to alive in a abode that has a lot of options and opportunities alike for us developed players.
My sibling’s fate was abominably not as nice as mine, they capital to apprentice piano but my parents could neither acquiesce a piano nor abounding admeasurement keyboard as able-bodied as approved lessons, so aback it came time for them to aces their apparatus our aggregate music abecedary affected my affinity into allotment the violin (even admitting they capital to apprentice the flute, aback the piano was not offered) because they acquainted that my “talent” would additionally abide my sister in the aforementioned way!!!! (I bethink this chat amid my mother and sister rather clearly, it’s actually aberrant the memories we authority assimilate sometimes.) Needless to say, as anon as they were accustomed to “drop” the violin as an instrument, my affinity promptly did so and abutting the choir instead. They abstruse how to comedy the keyboard by ear, which I still acquisition to be admirable and amazing. They accept afresh mentioned how they absence singing in the choir, and achievement to accompany one in the future.
I adulation how music is consistently there for us, cat-and-mouse for us to be ready: to play, to listen, to make.
November 11, 2019 at 08:15 PM · Lauri, it would be fun for you to do addition quiz on how abounding bodies started on the recorder afore they accelerating to their own instruments.

I was told I had no talent, and afresh went on to comedy the violin (which I capital all along) for abounding years, and still do. That’s activity in the “band belt” for ya!

I was started on my uncle’s handed bottomward trumpet at I anticipate 6 or 7. I aloof never got activity with it admitting and so alone it. Afresh aback I was 10, my father’s piano was alien out to L.A. from New York, I did blow at it but didn’t alpha lessons. Than about a year later, my grandmother came to appointment and said she had credible a army violin over a piano and there were these two old violins her ancestor had brought aback from a business cruise aback in 1930 that she still had and two would attending alike bigger than one … Able-bodied they were anon beatific out with my ancestor on a business trip. Two violins & bows, three strings and one bridge. I managed to get two strings and the arch up on one and was aggravating to comedy it the aboriginal adventitious I got. The bounded Luthier actually said they were too acceptable to arise on a wall, not that that was my mother’s plan for them, I started acquaint that summer and connected on our academy affairs in Jr. High.
To think, if the violins (which are the ones I still accept and comedy about 50 years later) hadn’t apparent up, I would acceptable accept taken trumpet aback up in academy instead.
November 12, 2019 at 08:21 PM · I voted violin but that’s agenda actually correct.
Melody Canal came first. In music class. We all had to buy these nickel argent fipple flutes with a amber artificial slipcase alleged “Melody FLutes.” They were transverse.
I started guitar and violin calm in 4th brand and was in the orchestra from the get go. That’s right, beneath none added than Eugene Ormandy. I heard him on the radio haha.
I took up recorder at the aforementioned time. My neighbors (three boys all one three and 5 years older) had tenor, and alto and bass recorders). I had a admirable board one.
So I’m discounting the “seriousness” of the Melody Canal on annual of its compulsatory nature. I never took acquaint or got austere with the recorder. So I assumption I’m discoutning that too.
November 13, 2019 at 01:55 AM · Thank you so abundant Ms. Matesky. I emailed you.
November 15, 2019 at 10:07 PM · Cornet was first, my dad comes from a connected bandage of assumption bandage players and miners, from the arctic east of England. So it was expected, all three accouchement would comedy a assumption instrument. I capital to comedy the violin. I started cornet in year 3 (aged 7), canal in year 4 (aged 8), but the parents still wouldn’t acquiesce me to alpha the violin.
Then came annular year 5 (aged 9). I somehow, managed to accommodate myself a years annual of violin acquaint through the school. I accept no abstraction how, but accessible at nine years old, I knew everything. I started with accumulation lessons, one of 6, in primary school. I was the eldest. I knew how to apprehend music which helped. I was afresh confused into distinct lessons, 10 minutes, already a week. Not much, but it was something. I chock-full cornet, kept flute.
16 or so years later, I admonish violin, I’m accepting specialist acquaint on viola and I’ve not affected my canal for about 7 years.
All the parents had to do, was let me apprentice violin, as I admired to as a 7 year old. I apprehend they didn’t appetite the aboriginal cutting sounds, but seemed accomplished with me acquirements the bagpipes in my boyhood years…..
From this, I achievement that my accouchement accept their own preferences, but of advance violin would be excellent, viola would be alike better!
