Did you hear that?

Our daughter had her very first violin lesson. (She has been begging for at least 8 months for lessons, so we decided to follow her lead and sign her up). She is taking Suzuki violin lessons once a week. 

She was so excited to carry her violin on the walk to class.

Since Snow White already knew the parts of the violin (We made cards using these from The Adventure’s of Bear and just made a few more to cover all the parts) she spent her first lesson practicing the proper way to stand, how to hold her violin and bow and she even got to practice her very first song! I am excited b/c I get to learn with her.

I thought she would not be excited about having to practice everyday, but I have never had to remind her, she asks often if she can practice! WooHoo, I hope that continues!

So, if you are taking a walk in our neighborhood you may just hear a sound-it may not be the most pleasant sound, but be assured, it is music! 

Do your children take music lessons or lessons of any kind? Tell me about your experiences!

That's so cute! My daughter is not even 2 yet, but she absolutely loves the piano. I want her to play the violin... But we'll just let her pick when she's older :)

AW! How cute is your little violinist! That is so exciting that you both will be learning. All our three get their musical talents from my hubby and (my mom's side) hm...somehow, it skipped over me and didnt rub off after all these years of marriage! haha I make a joyful noise :o) Ours all can play instruments and they are blessed with beautiful voices and an ear for music.

Blessings & Aloha!

Your daughter is beautiful! She looks so proud holding that violin! We tried violin with my son about a year ago, through private lessons offered during his school day. Because of his school situation, though, it didn't last long and he learned to hate it. It made me so sad! I hope that he will get the itch to try again soon, even if it isn't the violin.

Yes actually my daughter is taking violin lessons in school this year. It is part of the music program here in our county. I thank God that our schools still have these awesome programs. The whole 5th grade is learning violin this year during the music class. It is awesome and I too listen to that bow screeching across those strings on a daily basis.. Tiffany @ Wyatt Family Farm
