Can a 3 year old play violin?

Is this right or wrong? Do you want to know? Let it wash over your head and you’re done.

Here the answer is, yes indeed it would be possible to have a violinist (a 3 year old) playing violin. But in this case not the same age as a 3 yr old. Or else the kid would be way too young to be playing a violin, and the kid wouldn’t want to.

This means all the usual rules are not in place. Let me explain.

The Age of Violinists

For a child to be playing violin is really hard to measure accurately, it comes down to the age of the child and the skill level of the child. But in most cases that’s not a problem really. I have found 3 month old toddlers can play violin like they’re four, or even 5. It doesn’t matter.

However, it does matter, in the case of a young violinist, that the child is too young to practice regularly and learn well. And that’s exactly what people are trying to avoid.

Even if the child in his early 20s is playing violin quite well, in other words he wants to learn, is interested and is motivated to learn, he should still be restricted since to me it’s just wrong to have a little 6 year old in a 5 person band with another 10 year old.

It doesn’t matter if the child is not skilled enough. If it’s not working, then it’s not good.

A group of high school students got into the middle of an off-campus shooting.

It happened in the parking lot of a party in the 500 block of South State Road 2 in Wicker Park at 10:15 p.m. Sunday.

“They were just being silly,” student Alyssa Hwang said.

When the group came out of the party, the shooting started.

“They were just playing baseball in the park, and one of the guys started running around shouting about something,” student John Hwang said. “(I) noticed he had a gun, so I just ran and hid behind a building.”

He turned back inside, and that’s when he saw the gunman’s face.

“He was laying there in the parking lot, laying face down, shooting. And one of the guys on the ground had blood dripping from the back of his head. So a lot of people started coming by and trying to help.”
