Once a year and every year since we first started learning violin with her our violin teacher puts on a concert for the older members of the Salvation Army Cor that she attends.
The old folk enjoy seeing the young ones come back each year and as one lady told me"not only grow taller but stand taller in their confidence and ability to play.
None of my children are exactly extroverts so this is a good place to learn to perform in front of an audience. I should point out that this is something their teacher has had to make herself do to. In other words she understands!
The audience is always very positive in their comments(hint:few if any have played the violin so mistakes will pass unnoticed!)
There is always a great sense of camaraderie amongst Jenny's students. This year Jenny asked if our daughter would be willing to play in the concert even though she know longer gives her lessons. Yes it is something we look forward to in our Suzuki violin walk and this year wht could make it better but Grandma was with us as well!!
