Violin Recital

When James was three he started asking for a violin. Really... what 3 year old does that. So when he was 6 we found a good deal on a violin and that's what he got last year for Christmas. Needless to say he was excited. Many thought that he was to young for lessons but we decided to go ahead with it anyway. In February he started lessons... starting at the very beginning {a very good place to start} by learning all the parts to the violin. He has really progressed from there. And he just played in his first recital.

Miss Rebecca is his teacher, and she is such a good match for him. She is so patient with him and soft spoken. He has really learned so much from her.

After much thought he James decided that he wanted to play a longer version of Mary Had a Little Lamb. He is playing lots of songs but this is what he felt the most comfortable playing.
 He thought he was going to be nervous and have stage fright, but he didn't. Not at all! He did so well, and Miss Rebecca taught him how to take a bow when he finished. I can see that this will be the first of many recitals that we will be attending. 

James I'm so proud of you and all your hard work. You are a great violin player and are only going to get better from here.
