what is the best instrument to begin with to learn music? piano?
I would really like to learn violin eventually, however, it is likely a difficult place to start.
i am an appreciator of music but, at the same time, a novice.

mel, if violin is where you wish to end up, my suggestion is to start with it.

For learning music, violin is a great instrument. In fact, in many places students start on violin as early as age five. If you want to learn violin I would strongly suggest finding out if there are any Suzuki Strings classes in your area. Suzuki is a great and time tested method for learning to play an instrument, and as you are an older student you would likely catch on very quickly.
Piano is also a great place to start, but I would tend to agree with Pete. If you are interested in the violin then there is no reason to not start with it right away.
