Remembering the beginning.....

January 14, 2010 at 5:18 AM

Today I listened Hilary Hahn playing twinkle twinkle little star in a Danish tv show, I had seen that interview before, but I just wanted to listen to her playing.... So I watched the whole interview and in the end when she was sending the viewers to sleep ( a tradition of the show) the interviewer asked her if it was the most well known tune in America, she answered : " I´m not sure if in america, but is the most well known piece among music students, I think everyone starts with twimkle it was the first piece I played"....

I was transported to my beginnings on the violin, I remembered how happy I was when my teacher taugh me the piece on my lesson, we played other tunes, but that one was the most special one, it was the beginning........

Hilary Hahn played it so beautifully, it made me remember all the joys of playing this instrument, all the good times it has given me.......  I know we have to focus on intonation , posture practice scales, etudes..... but if that is what it takes in order to play the violin , I will do it...

Its been almost 2 years...... I started on february, so next month will be my violin aniversaryyy!!!!!!!
