My 4 year old daughter playing Happy Birthday song for mommy

February 18, 2010 at 1:58 PM

Today (18 Feb 2010) is my wife's birthday, so I wrote out the Happy Birthday song into simple-to-understand Suzuki violin tablature, and asked my 4 year old daughter to play the tune for her mommy. My wife was really touched. (=

Here's the video clip:

You Go, Cathleen! Nicely in-tune. My birthday is this weekend, too, so thank you! ;)

You have a beautiful daughter who is a beautiful musician.  I bet Mom loved it.  I teach that song to some of my beginner students to celebrate their own or a family member's birthday.  My students are 8 or 9 years old, but your daughter is so precocious.  Thanks for posting it.  It gave my spirit quite a boost.
