My husband never had the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument as a child, as many children do. When he was in his 40’s he decided the time had come to learn how to read music and play the piano. He took lessons for about 3 years, but life became busy and he gave up the lessons for the next 15 years. Eight years ago he decided to begin again and has been taking lessons once a week since then. A year and a half ago he decided he wanted to learn how to play the violin. He found a teacher and bought a violin and has been taking lessons once a week. Considering how difficult the violin is to play, he took to it quickly even to the surprise of his teacher. Monday is piano lesson night, Thursday is violin lesson night. And every night is practice night in our home. I greatly admire him, not only taking on one instrument as an adult, but two.
