As a girl I have played flute for some years. With little talent and even less enthusiasm I struggled to get the first degree. That's why I hesitated when our daughters (first J, later N too) said that they wanted to play the violin. I ignored their wish for quite some time, but it kept coming back. Something to listen to. So we found them a nice teacher, rented small violins and now they've had their first lesson. The girls love it. And so do I. Proud already.
