After many moved dates and changes in appointments (Never try to start a new class right before the holidays in December!), Yessa finally had her first violin lesson.
Being of an introverted sort, at least upon initial introduction, Yessa was nervous, but once she saw Ms. Malinda, she was enamored. A more sparkly, friendly, supportive, kind instructor you could not ask for. (Rest in peace, my tear-inducing childhood piano teacher from The Nether World.)
Yessa spent the first class getting a violin (1/2-size), learning about the musical notes, practicing holding the instrument and playing the notes, and just generally getting comfortable.
It was a lovely first lesson, and she’s excited to go back.
Grandma Babs is also taking violin lessons, and I envision a day when a duet of “Mary Had A Little Lamb” is being played via skype.
