Violin Lessons

Last Thursday at 4:00 we headed out the door for Gabe's first ever violin lesson!

Gabe has wanted to play the violin for so long - and he finally recieved a real violin for Christmas from GiGi and PopPop. He has been nearly obsessed with Classical music from the time he was one year old. His favorite show as a baby/toddler was Little Einsteins. By the time he was one he could recognize different instruments by their sound. A few weeks before his second birthday I caught an orchestra performing Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 on TV and he sat entranced through the entire thing! By the time he was three he could name the composer when he would hear a classical peice and hum any number of classical songs. Before his lesson he asked me if his teacher would teach him to play Vivaldi and if he would be as good as famous violinist, Itzak Perlman! I can't wait to see what God has in store for this little guy and his violin!

Here he is anxiously awaiting his turn with the teacher!

And now, he will show you what he learned at his first lesson:
