I started playing the violin when I was 7 years old.. soon going through the grades and at 13 yrs old I was the one and only person to get 21 out of 21 in my scales and arp’s at grade 5 and 139 out of 150 in total. Came 3rd in the country…. I played a duet of Vivaldi’s four Seasons in front of the BBC news reader John Humphries and many guests. When I was 15 all changed… I lost my teacher because he decided to move up north to Manchester, that was the steady down hill road… Eventually gave up after my 16th birthday having only grade 7 and 8 to do… I am now kicking myself…..

    Aww, it is really is tragic for me to read about you and your violin’s background. Kind of speechless, frankly. But it’s a beautiful shot. I can see you miss it, there’s such reverence.

  • umm yes, I will one day get to hold the violin and bow when I am back in the solomn yet creative mind set. Thank u for your comment
