|Make the violin relevant to what your student is experiencing in school, with his friends, on television, in the culture in general. At this time of year kids see Halloween everywhere they go. Get into the season by plaing the music of the season. A GREAT recording is SCARY MUSIC by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. Others are CLASSICS FROM THE CRYPT, and Fright Night: Music that Goes Bump in the Night, which feature various orchestras playing music associated with Halloween. And don't forget, this is a learning experience. Point out the various instruments as you hear them. "Let's try to make sounds like that on YOUR instrument!"
