Today's Tip
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope you remembered to wear some
green today!

What better day is there than St. Patrick's Day to remember that violin is not just about playing classical music?  It is not just about playing Twinkle. Playing the violin is about music in general and having fun.

Today is a day when you can usually find Irish bands playing in most large towns.  And in most Irish bands there is a fiddle!  If you get the chance to go hear an Irish band today . . . take it!  Watch the deftness of the bow and the fiddler's fingers.  Listen to rhythms that may not be familiar to you!  Learn a new tune or two.  Revel in the knowledge that you play an instrument that brings joy to people all over the world!
