Today's Tip
Tomorrow is the Fourth of July!  It's a holiday in the United States, where I live. 

On holidays I still like to play violin, but I give myself a treat.  Instead of doing my usual practice, I play pieces that I especially like.  That way it does not seem so much like work or learning, but it is a game.

The other way to make playing the violin fun on a holiday is to play music that celebrates that holiday.  On the Fourth of July I may play songs like Yankee Doodle.  On Christmas I play Christmas Carols.

Even if I need to practice something special, I still end holiday practices with something I have fun with!  Remember, playing violin should be fun!
