What would you think if I did this?

I'm thinking of taking violin lessons, but I'd love the satisfaction of being able to say "oh yeah, I taught this to myself."

But I know lessons would be much faster, however, I feel like If I taught myself, id be respected and awed more. I know I CAN teach myself, it would just take a lot more time.
