The girls did great.
This was Ainsley's first time to play an entire piece with an accompaniment on the piano. She has spent over a year to get this far. She uses all 3 fingers and two strings. She has worked very hard. Violin is NOT easy to play, she is really proud of herself. After this first set of songs she has learned, it starts speeding up. She told me she was nervous to play but she kept it in her tummy.
Incidentally, the camera was moving around like crazy because... can you guess??? Anderson decided that was the time to climb all over me...
Alexandra's piece is a Folk Song called Long, Long Ago. It's her first song where she crosses over to the D string. Plus, she is now holding her bow with her thumb on the inside. Only took 2 1/2 years to get there. She works very hard.
Sweet sweet girls.
Btw, Anderson informs me *every* week, "when I get big I pay biolin."
