Good morning everyone! It’s Friday and that means a day of relaxation after a long day of school. But this post isn’t going to describe everything that has been going on in my life for the past few days, I’ll give a brief description because I have to study for my math quiz today.
I joined string class last week, but I had to leave chorus because both of the classes started the same periods for me, I had in mind that I wanted to play the violin and I was eager to learn. So I got my schedule updated and I was very excited for the new week to start. We didn’t start right away because the teacher (Ms.Elder) had to get everything prepared (how many students would be in the class, the amount of violins available, etc) for us. All of us were assigned to a certain violin (I am a 3/4) and we had to remember our number for future references.
I can’t remember everything that happened on Tuesday (we didn’t have school on Wednesday) but I can clearly remember what happened yesterday (Thursday). Yesterday we actually started our first lesson! I couldn’t believe it, I was very excited because I would finally learn how to play the violin. We learned about the different strings on the violin and their pitches. The teacher told us how we should read music and how to play it. It was hard for me to hold the bow because I had to put my fingers in a certain position, and it’s not that comfortable. Standing up straight wasn’t too difficult for me, bothersome but not very difficult.
I forgot to mention that two more girls joined our class yesterday (there are over 5 students in our period) and I was glad to see that many of us were eager to learn. The period was full of laughter and fun 🙂 I enjoyed my first lesson (even though my back started hurting in the end) and I hope that today’s lesson will be as fun. Thank you for reading this post and may God give you all strength on this great day. I’ll see you all later!
