A violin of her own -- one very excited little girl
Little Miss has now been blessed with a violin of her very own.
It was my Grandmother's violin (Great grandmother of Little Miss) My mother paid to have it fixed up since it has sat since my grandmother's death 40 years ago.
It is a hardwood violin and is over 100 years old. My Grandmother played it in the local university's orchestra and in city orchestras in every town they lived in that had one.
Oh it sounds beautiful. It even makes Little Miss's "beginning to play sounds" sound ... well not lovely... but definitely easier on the ears.

That is so wonderful. Introducing a child to a musical instrument (especially one as beautiful and expressive as a violin) is a true gift that will last her a lifetime.08-30-2010, 01:32 PM #508-30-2010, 01:41 PM #6
That is what grade they can start orchestra in our school.
Hubby and I were band geeks not orchestra kids. This is something we never anticipated have children in the orchestra but both children requested to play and requested certain instruments.
Our Labrador loves string music.
Whenever Buddy practices the cello she will plop herself right down by the cello and listen to him play.
Yesterday, Little Miss was trying out her violin and our Lab plopped herself right down by Little Miss to listen. She doesn't look at the instrument or the player except when they stop. Then she looks at them with a look of why did you stop? Once they start playing again she goes back to her listening position.
