A dual recital

If you are the parent (or grandparent) of a child who is learning an instrument then you know the incredible amount of work it takes to successfully perform a recital. Now times that by two.

Owen performed selections from Suzuki book 1 and Miles performed selections from book 2 and then they did a couple of duets, which, quite honestly, were the hardest things to get right.  (I opted to not post the pictures I have of them stopping in the middle of one of the duets and arguing with each other.)

The day can best be described by something our favorite violin teacher, Sister Sorensen, tells the boys at each lesson, “Hard Work Pays Off!”

A little FYI for you moms: Our local hair lady was out of town all week which explains the hair.  What is still inexplicable is why Owen isn’t wearing a belt or why Miles is wearing Harper’s tie.

    No video?? I love your FYI comment. I wouldn’t have noticed any of the above if you hadn’t pointed them out.

    All in all, it was a good recital! They are cute even when the fight! Someday they will thank you for making them take lessons and performing. Trust me! I speak from experience.
