    Fun little fact: My mother's first education was as professional dombra player. She even worked as a music teacher in Kazan for a year or so, after which our family moved to Moscow, and she never took a dombra in her hands again. Which is kind of sad, if you ask me.

      Aww, that makes me sad too. Why did she quit? Have you ever thought about buying her a dombra (if she doesn't have one anymore) and/or encouraging her to play again?

        AFAIK, she never liked it in the first place :-) Her dombra is somewhere in her mother's flat in Kazan, so if she really wanted, she could take it.

          Oh, LOL... I guess it doesn't make much sense to do what I suggested then! I am a bit less sad now knowing that the reason she quit was that she didn't enjoy it though. :P
