What are your special abilities or talents?

My talent is that I can play the violin. I learned the violin from when I was 5 years old and I'm 13 now, so I've learned it for about 8 years. I like to play the violin because I can relieve my stress of the day. The only thing I don't like about the violin is that I can't show off my talent at school. People who play the piano can play it in the chorus contest, but for me, I can't play the violin in front of people. This is the only dissatisfaction about playing the violin.

Congratulations on mastering the art of playing the violin that is amazing. I think you should keep practicing either way incase one day you have an opportunity to play for people especially your schoolmates. What interested you about the violin?

I wish I have an opportunity in the future. I started playing the violin because in my prep school, there was a violin teacher and a piano teacher. I was forced to choose the violin or piano, and I started the violin. The thing that interests me about the violin is that I can make a sound just by holding down the strings in the right place, and moving the bow. However, I just learned about sound in my science class in school, and now I know why there are different sounds in only 4 strings.

hope I have an opportunity in the future. I started playing the violin because in my prep school, there was a violin teacher and a piano teacher. I was forced to choose between the violin or piano, and I opted for the violin. The thing that interests me about the violin is that I can make a sound just by holding down the strings in the right place, and moving the bow. However, I just learned about sound in my science class in school, and now I know how only 4 strings can produce so many sounds.

1. we use "I hope + present/future simple' to express a wish for the future, and "I wish + past simple' to express an impossible wish in the present
2. we choose between two or more things

That is amazing you just keep learning more about the violin and its sounds. How many students are you in the violin class?

I learn the violin with one teacher, and there aren't any other students. Also, it is very rare for people to learn the violin. For example, there are only 2 students, including me, in my middle school which has about 200 students in one grade. However, I can practice my violin skills in the Junior Orchestra made by the city.

I learn the violin with one teacher in a one on one lesson. Also, it is very rare for people to learn the violin. For example, there are only 2 of us out of 200 students in one class in middle school. However, I can practice my violin skills in the City Junior Orchestra.

3. we naturally call it a City Orchestra
Oh wow that is a huge difference. In your own opinion why do you think most of the students do not choose violin but play piano instead?

I think they choose to play the piano because it is cheaper than learning the violin. As I said before, there aren't that many people who can play the violin. So, it is very expensive to learn it from someone. Many people think music is good for them, but they don't want to spend their money on it. So, most of them choose to play the piano instead of the violin.

Many people think music is good for them as long as they don't spend too much money on it. So, the piano is the preferable option for most of them.

Oh yes you are right about that people like things but do not want to spend on them. It's a fact of life even out of school. Is there any other thing about Violins you would like to share?

Well, there aren't any clubs that the violin is included in. For example, almost every school has a brass band club, but not a strings club. Schools that have strings club is a private school, and there aren't any in public schools. I'm thinking about making a new strings club when I become a 2nd grader.

1. 7. your expression was fine, this is a different expression that you can also use in this context
2. we naturally call it a brass band
3. use articles with singular countable nouns
4. 'schools' is a plural noun, and this is the corresponding verb form

6. we naturally say we start or form a club
