He has three days to master it ...

Sometimes it's downright strange how closely we walk the same path. We have one week until our concert and I've been thinking about putting up a video myself! So funny.

Rachel said...

Aaaaawwww, bless.....as a mother, I filled up just a little bit. And the cat got up from her afternoon nap, sat very close to the screen, and listened intently.

BabelBabe said...

sounds like he has the lower parts down - they sound lovely, and those little trills...how cool.

Badger said...

Ooo! That was lovely. He will do fine, I'm sure.

And now I know how to liven up my blog posts. TUBA! Must get the boy to play something while I record him.

He has a lovely, relaxed, comfortable way about him. I think he'll do well.

You know there's a special place in Heaven for the parents of violin players, don't you? You can drink with my Mum when you get there, and she'll tell you about how I left my violin on the train in Glenroy, and then a fortnight later my brother left his trumpet on a train in the city, and how she didn't kill us, but how she wished she had when we got our first Tune A Day books, and you'll pour her another drink. Then you can tell her about having three days to the concert, and she'll top you up.

True.

Sounds pretty good to me, but I only listened once.

How many times will you hear it in the next three days?

Stomper Girl said...

Crikey he looks so professional and ...at home... with that violin. I am so impressed.

I am filled with pride and I am not even related! Low notes great, trills great, he'll get the high notes any time soon. Fabbo.

My kids did a London Bridge is Falling Down duet with Clarinet and Trombone in the holidays. Hillarious combination.

He's sounding quite good to me... don't worry, three days is a long time. He'll work at it and will be proud; you'll be proud too. :-)

Michelle said...

He's coming along so well...
love the video...fantastic idea...

p.s thanks for sending me the links on wristwarmers...
they helpped out so much...

Still gobsmacked that innercitygarden's mum didn't kill herself, if not her children...

(and imagining how I would react if the Pea Princess left her thousand dollar flute on the train... I think I'd better post a video of her somewhere just in case it goes missing soon).

The boy, he'll be grand. Love that trill about 20 seconds into it. That's talent.

I'm with Bec..love the trills....he was great! ( the concert's already been!)
