Three Steps Away To Taking The Effort To Play An Instrument

I’m glad I had the opportunity to play the violin. I take the advantages now in my early thirties.

Now I can play in a good amateur orchestra and playing beautiful music. Maybe not as a soloist as I wanted as a child, but more playing the violin for fun, to enjoy. I still love playing the violin a lot. It gives me positive emotions and fills me with joy.

When I play the violin, I am emotional. I feel deep inside what the music is meant for and how I have to play certain passages.

When I play myself, I can feel the music through my veins, then I feel the emotions that needed to be played, based on what the composer wanted in his head when composing the music. I can give my emotions in music too. I mean, when I have been through a few things, or someone said something to me I didn’t like, most of the time I take my violin and I play, just play. Not practicing, just playing. Just feeling what I wanted to feel when I was angry when that particular person said something bad to me.
