This is my 7 year old Makenzie. We are on a new adventure… learning to play the violin. For any of you out there who have ever tried to play the violin, It is crazy hard. I feel like not only is she learning to play but so are we.
She has an amazing teacher, Dr Fajardo. He is from Honduras. He told Kenzie at her last practice that when he first started playing the violin that he practiced for 8 hours a day. It is obvious. We went and saw him play in the symphony on Sunday. It was beautiful!!! I have to admit that after the first set I was ready to go… BUT Makenzie was in AWE!!!
Did you know that when you start violin that you have to work up to using the bow. We are just getting ready to start on the bow. That should be fun ( just a little sarcasm)! Right now we are learning our hand placements.
As we progress I will keep you posted.
