Our little violinist graduated from Suzuki Book 1 and we had a home concert to celebrate! She played through every song in the book and I captured them all on video so we can look back and reminisce someday. This is Minuet 1, by Bach, it's towards the end of the book. She's had a good fall semester of violin, even with all day school getting in the way of practice time. We started morning practice early in September and it's been so nice. Now there's no tiredness and complaints, it's just what we do right after breakfast, and we usually have 20-30 minutes. Her favorite thing to do is to figure out by herself how to play her favorite songs, lately it's been Silent Night and Jingle Bells. One morning last week I was in the kitchen and I heard her directing her brother where to stand and when to come in, and when I came back in the room, he had his little jingle bells and they'd put together a duet. :) I'll have to video that one for you!
