What Instrument(s) do you play?


Describe your playing level and experience. (No judgements here. We just want people of similar abilities and experience to find each other)

I think I am about intermediate. I started playing with my 4 yr old daughter (Suzuki) about 25 years ago and have kept at it - sometimes intensively and sometimes less depending on life demands. She blasted through all the books and is very accomplished. I got through most of Book 5 but struggle with 5th position or above, fast playing and shifting, sight reading. I LOVE playing with other people and have played in a few amateur, non-audition orchestras. I know when to play and when NOT to play (the high, fast passages)!
