Have you read Vaughn vs Violin? Adult beginner Ryan Vaughn has given himself one year to go from Zero to playing Paganini’s 24th Caprice on the violin.

Seriously? Apparently so.

Of his experience level, Vaughn says, “Now let me make one thing clear.  I’m not totally new to the violin.  By totally new I mean when I was in 5th grade I played violin for 6 months and I played for two months from October through November 2009.”

He does have one advantage – his wife, Danielle Belen is a concert violinist and teacher.

Good luck, Ryan!
