smiling angel

My mother was an avid violin player.  Never a professional, she played frequently with local orchestras, and taught violin lessons throughout her life.

As my daughter Emma enters 4th grade, she has the opportunity to play a string instrument through the school’s music program.  She enthusiastically chose the violin.  Her violin classes will begin this coming week, but I am allowing her to carefully feel what it’s like to hold & produce open notes on the violin.

There can be no doubt that Grandma Charlotte is smiling down on Emma as she makes her first sounds on the violin.

What a great face of concentration on your daughter! I hope that she loves music as much as her dad, which will make it easier to hear some of the notes that sound confoundingly like the screeching of small, furred animals. I had a son who learned the violin, so I remember. . .

Great pics…I’m sure Grandma Charlotte is very proud.
