I have been moving house these days. Today while I was taking a little break from tidying the house. Playing my violin , my new neighbour rang my bell, an old man with a native assent talked to me, ” your violin is not properly fixed. ” from hearing what he said, I knew he’s must be of same expertise as I do. And listening to elderly do nothing harm, right? I asked him the detail and we spent many hours together.
He’s a retired musician, professional in fixing and teaching violin. My violin is not a very expensive one, one of its problem is that the distance between fingers is too large with certain interval, which hinder my speed and affects my pitch accuracy.
Without me telling him, he already fixed the sound colour, as well as the key problem I have had with the violin. He even gave me a new Rosin! I m having big luck today!
