Well...Yes and No. It all depends on a combination of elements. Although we all consider fun in music to be the most important part, it also means that your violin teacher will have high expectations for you, and you'll need to truly master the skills and music that you're working on before moving on to something new. Truthfully, there's no better way to become a great musician than to receive private violin lessons from a talented, experienced, motivating, passionate and patient violin teacher who wants to see you succeed and who understands and uses the cycle of music learning.
Remember that, when you take private violin lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention. You'll be able to progress at a pace that is just right for your needs. Your violin teacher will be able to hear the nuances in your performance and can take the time to adjust small things, like your posture, volume, articulation, intonation and phrasing, that can make a big difference in your development as a musician.

The Rebab, though valued for its voice-like tone, has a very limited range (little over an octave), and was gradually replaced throughout much of the Arab world by the violin and kemenche. It is related to the Iraqi instrument the Joza, which has four strings. The introduction of the rebab into Western Europe has possibly coincided with the conquest of Spain by the Moors, in the Iberian Peninsula. There is however evidence of the existence of bowed instruments in the 9th century also in Eastern Europe: the Persian geographer of the 9th century Ibn Khurradadhbih cited the bowed Byzantine lira (or lura) as typical bowed instrument of the Byzantines and equivalent to the Arab rabab.
From the older Rebab to the 'modern' Rebec ( 3 strings) is maybe a small step but a long way. In the Renaissance (1400-1500) the Rebec was pretty much in use in Spain, Greece, Italy and France, when 'Playing the First Fiddle" in a band or group. Being a melody instrument, it should be heard at any times. From Fiddle (vedel) the Lyra da Braccio it developped in Northern Italy (about 1550) to what we would call the baroque violin. In both modern popular as well as traditional Greek, Folk, Turkisch, Kurdish, Persian Maqam music the Rebab and Rebec related Lyra and the Kemenche are still frequently in use.
We know the modern violin from various music styles, Jazz, (Stephane Grapelli) Folk, Klezmer, Country to pop and metal (Metallica). We know the violin from Vivaldi's Quatro Stagioni, Bach and Mozart concertos , classical orchestras, stringensembles, background strings, string quartet and beautiful sonatas for violin and piano. Did we forget the great romantic extremely hard to play concertos by Tjaikowsky, Mendelssohn, Bruch, Sibelius or Shostakovich? Listen to David Oistrakh in Shostakovich concerto no 2 opus 129....
