This past Monday, the Florida Youth Orchestra had us present our violins. The reception was fun - we paraded our violins to Harvey's introduction. The most fun was talking with each other: our challenges, lessons, experiences with the violin. We even walked out with product suggestions (and I am looking forward to getting the hardware store and playing!)
The biggest challenge most of us had was letting go of the violin. To stop picking at it, working on it, handling it. The violin is such a great shape, the wood is so smooth! I already have ideas if honored next year!
