The kids each had a holiday violin concert this afternoon. The brand new beginners played before my son and I learned something interesting.
Starting this year, each beginning student must have a parent learn to play along with them. So each kid had a violin-playing parent on stage with them.
If that policy was in effect when my kids started, they wouldn't be playing the violin. There's no way they'd get my perfectionist ass up on that stage!
Ah, life without the stresses of violin. That could have been sweet.
