The Violin?

So yesterday at the Hillbrow Music School, 9 year old Rachel Lee Branken started learning the … violin!! Surprise, surprise! I asked her why she had chosen that instrument since we had decided together that she would start the recorder with a view to changing to flute later on…she said she just woke up one morning and wanted to learn it!

Nothing to do with the absolutely virtuosic little 8 year olds she heard a few weeks back, each playing a movement from a violin concerto from memory in that inter-schools concert we went to, I hope!

  1. Violin is wonderful……and difficult. Our little girl plays too. Our other (not so little) girl plays (and is teaching) the flute. You may be interested to find out that her teachers have all been very relieved that she didn’t play recorder first 🙂
