Two years have passed since I first asked about whether an adult should try to learn a musical instrument with no music background at all.

So two years later and probably 900 hours of violin time, plus weekly lessons, here's what I've accomplished (same violin and bow):

After completing the three book String Builder series with my teacher, she's now moved me into Wohlfahrt etudes and lots of shifting exercises.

We shall see what Year 3 brings.
Sounds great! I’ve been taking guitar lessons 2.5 years now (30min once a week) and it’s been a ton of fun. Slow and steady wins the race! (the race being ongoing improvement and ability to learn things faster)

I’ve been messing around w trying to play along with a metronome and that’s challenging.

I started piano about 3 and half years ago. I upload videos occasionally to youtube for friends. My grand piano is the most expensive thing I've ever bought and is the thing I take the most care of after my dog.
