Violin Lessons by Therese (6th Class)
Last year Mrs. Quinn asked Natalia about teaching the violin in our school. Natalia kindly agreed. Therefore Mrs. Quinn inquired from 3rd to 6th class if anyone was interested in taking up the violin.
A vast amount of children showed an interest from the classes.
When we first met Natalia we were greeted by a kind, smiling person. She asked us our names and sorted us into groups.
She has taught us some beautiful simple tunes. After only eleven lessons we were able to put on a performance for the parents. It was a fantastic experience for us.
I love the lessons and will definitely keep it up in Secondary School. Any doubts I had that the violin would be a difficult instrument to play have now been dispelled.
Thank you Natalia and Mrs. Quinn.
