Emma and I had our first graduation recital for violin. Since we both finished the first book around the same time our violin teacher said we could do the recital together and at our house. Mike accompanied all of the songs as we played through every one of the songs in the first Suzuki Book. Both of us were pretty nervous, although you couldn’t tell by looking at Emma because she looked so calm. I played most of the songs with Emma but let her play a few of the harder songs by herself. She did such a great job. It was especially nice that my mom and dad were visiting so they could be part of our small recital. It has been so much fun to learn violin with Emma over the past year or so. I hope Emma continues to love playing the violin.
