March 23, 2012 at 12:59 AMHere's to a great first post! For now, I'll just talk about what happened today; hope you enjoy!
Various things occurred today in the wonderful world of violin playing for me. I recorded myself performing a piece I wrote, 'Giving Back to Nature,' for my sister's twelfth birthday tomorrow; it's a duet, but I play both parts. After school, I fitted the parts together the best I could, and it worked out pretty well, although there were some rushing problems. I only had two days to sightread and perform this piece, so I definitely could improve.
For my sister's birthday, me and my family are going to see The Hunger Games tomorrow, and I'm hoping if any music sticks out I'll come home, ready to arrange it for violin (most likely). Speaking of movies, our concert for orchestra is going to reflect movie themes. We have so far gotten The Pink Panther theme, Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas, and a medley of music from Ratatouille; tomorrow, our teacher will hand out music from Toy Story 2 and Fantasia 2000, so I'm really excited!
I also take private violin lessons. Our Spring Recital is coming up, and I am playing Vivaldi's Concerto in A Minor.
Well, I think that's all for today. I'll probably talk about other things (not just what happened) in future blog entries. I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading!
