While I have been, and will always be an advocate and supporter of the brass section, I have always secretly wanted to be a string player. Just on the side. I learned to play “Twinkle, Twinkle” on the violin in 3rd grade, but haven’t touched a string instrument since. But boy, do I want to. And I want to be good at it. (None of those terrible screeching sounds I managed to make years ago.)
I stumbled upon this video today, and I had to try hard to resist jumping onto eBay and buying a violin. Check it out!
