Violin Lessons

Gabriella and Jocelyn practicing their violins together!!!!!!!
Jocelyn LOVES the violin! She is doing amazing and we're so proud of her!!!

Gabriella also LOVES her violin and she blows me away at how QUICK she picks up music!

The girls got their violins last week and have caught on remarkably well. All three of us are actually learning...YES momma is learning violin, too! It's the Suzuki Method. In theory one parent learns right along with the child and thus is able to practice daily and fully learn side by side. Brain researchers say that children need to be exposed and drenched in music by age 8 in order to fully grasp and be able to make the connections necessary for development. So all this work will benefit them down the road in more ways than one!
I'm so glad my girls love music as much as Ryan and I do. They really learn quickly and it's amazing to watch them. Although, right now it's real squeeky and hurtful to listen to at times. Ear plugs PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
