I took violin (not fiddle) lessons from Mr. Belfiglio, a passionate Italian professional violinist, for six years.
I played in orchestras and ensembles, performed as a soloist until we moved to NoVa where there was no strings program. I did get conscripted by the music teacher in my new high school to play a violin solo of "O Holy Night" in the Christmas Music Show. Some of my classmates had never heard a violin before!
My original violin, a cherished Christmas gift when I was 10, is the one I am playing..... I'm a little rusty but I still have it.
