Recital time

The girls took violin from a student at the University this spring, and played in a recital in April.

This is their teacher.  He’s a nice guy, and he did alright teaching them, but we have switched teachers.  They learned Suzuki method in Georgia, and this teacher didn’t know Suzuki method at all.  He said he did, but it turned out he just used the books.

At the end of the recital, all the students played something together.

I was there in my role as trusty accompanist.

Ben was thrilled to be there to support his sisters.  (He calls this his “mean face.”)

He’s actually been putting on concerts of his own lately.  I’m not sure if he was inspired by his sisters’ performances or not, but he likes to pull a bunch of chairs into the living room, stand on the couch, and sing along to a CD.  It looks like this:

    What a couple of pretty girls and a cute boy! Ron and I still talk about taking Abbey to McDonald’s and her getting Choca Milk. Her looking in the bottle to Make sure some milk was still in there and saying, “I not full up to here yet.” Great memories!

    just beautiful!!!!!!!!! Wonderful job Abby and Emma. You both play very well and I’m so proud of you. You are blessed that you have a Mom who can accompany you. I look forward to the day we see Ben on video playing too. What a blessing.

    Beautiful pictures! And I’d love to hear one of Ben’s concerts. Are those chairs for the audience?
