For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Violin lesson

I have finally signed Zach up for violin lesson. It's been a bit over a month now. We went with a Suziki school which emphasize repetition, exposure, group playing, mastery before moving on, and listening skills. I am pretty happy with the teacher who seems to be good with young kids. They start them off with a pretend cardboard violin so as to teach them proper handling of the violin. He was blessed in that he already has a real violin, given to him by a family friend at Christmas. I definitely can't wait for him to play his first piece of music which probably won't be in a while . . .
This has allowed me to emphasize dilligence even more, as Zach likes to play around with everything he does or play lazy. The first few weeks were a challenge (not so  much in the learning than in the focusing part), but I can see the improvement.
Joho wants to play something too, so we are thinking of putting him in Piano maybe in the fall when he will be 4.

Have a great day, Joelle
