When my second was about 7 I started taking violin lessons with him and I loved it. I took lessons for about a year until Maggie, my 5th was born. I stopped, but I would love to take it up again! I have one daughter who played for a few years, and my youngest is now taking lessons with my friend and neighbor (very convenient!). I should probably pick it up again with her. Such good brain exercise, learning new music!
