Played violin with Austin for 2 hours today!

August 22, 2011

Austin told me he really wanted to be able to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’s Variation A on his own today.  I really didn’t think he could play it through, but I was wrong! We played together for an hour in the morning and then an hour in the afternoon.  I found Austin being really patient when trying to learn a new technique(going from E string to A string and putting his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd fingers down to prepare for the next note), which really surprised me, because he’s usually a very impatient kid.  What I realized today is if I make playing violin ‘fun’ for Austin and not make it seem like it’s a ‘homework’ for him, my teaching days in the future will be much easier for the both us:)

Here’s Austin’s first picture holding his violin:)
