Meet 

Venus

from 

Providence, RI

One of my biggest goals for my violin is to play the violin through a loop and paint to the music that I’ve actually created.

What’s your name, where are you from, and when did you start learning violin?

My name is Venus, I'm from Texas, and I started my Trala journey in 2020, in my 58th year. I'm a late bloomer, but that's OK!”

Why did you decide to learn violin?

The violin has always been a long standing passion. It’s beautiful and it’s something I need to learn. But it was also a contest between me and my son to see who would play better—whoever played better by the end of the year got to take the other person's violin. So guess what? I have his violin! 

What are your goals for the violin?

One of my biggest goals for my violin is to play the violin through a loop and paint to the music that I’ve actually created. I’d also like to play for my immediate family, like my grandchildren, or at a wedding. But actually, to use my own recording of music to paint to—that's one of the things I want to try.


Venus is an artist from Rhode Island, who’s been learning violin with Trala since 2021.
