I was eight here, I think, and this was after I outgrew my first teacher (in 6 months! eep) and was at the MacPhail School of Music in the Cities. My violin size here was 1/8, but I started with 1/16.I'm officially a violin teacher!!! Woohoo! I'm actually really excited about it all. I like music and kids, why not have them together? My student is six, and I think he is going to do well. I taught my first lesson with him already, and it was pretty good for a first, but I probably will end up tweaking my plans and goals as we go along. He said that he likes playing, only it's hard because he doesn't know any songs. 😉So our first song is an A and B song, focusing on two notes. If he learns it well before our next lesson, we'll move on to a fun song called Walking in the Moonlight.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love kids?
See you all TOMORROW with Favorites for Friday!
