From the perspective of an experienced violinist, I would say that there are many benefits of playing a violin. You don't have to play it professionally at an orchestra to enjoy these benefits. They apply to anyone who plays violins at any age.
During the practice from time to time, you will gain strength and flexibility and his (or her) arms. Your fingers will gain the muscle memory needed for playing. Sooner or later, the brain will coordinate better the whole body to process a piece and to play accordingly.
Your body posture will be improved because you need to stand straight to play the violin. It follows that your back will get stronger, because of the need to sit up straight while playing.
Your attention span and focus will be improved as you need to focus on learning both how to read music and the violin itself.
Your graphic and rhythmic memory will be improved as you need to memorize both the music score and the physical movements to play the score.
Your self-discipline will be improved if you can dedicate yourself to practice on a regular basis.
Music, in general, is a good outlet for releasing feelings and expressing yourself.
