Ella started taking violin lessons after the first of the year--thanks to informative Kindermusik teacher, KayLynn Gibson of Nederland, Texas
Last year at Dicken's on the Strand, Troy, Ella and I stopped to admire two young violists playing their Christmas tunes.
As luck had it, we were standing next to the children's mother. Since I am instrument challenged, and E seems to have a passion for musical instruments, I asked lots of questions. KayLynn kindly obliged.
E started out learning appropriate stances, parts of the violin, bow hold, and rhythms
Graduated to a box violin
Acquired her very own practice "violin studio" (like her teacher, Mrs. Meghan;).
And, last week...she earned her real violin! She was sooooooooo excited to perform her first concert this weekend to a sold out crowd at her "Aunt Jan and Uncle Hank's" Bison Ranch outside of Waco;).
Coming your way soon: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star ;).
Recital: June 15th.
Here's to the sound of peaceful, soothing music--EVENTUALLY.
Special thanks to all those who listened in support:
