Tiny Violinist

Music can touch us in a way that nothing else can. No better gift can we give to the children than to open this door for them.”

I’ve been casually teaching my boys about music pretty much from the day they were born. Music, particularly classical, has been a huge part of my life & I always knew I’d try to pass that love along to my children. My ability to play/compose music has opened many doors for me, both in my career & in my own personal fulfillment, and I’m so grateful to my parents for giving me those opportunities by providing the gift of music education from a very young age; I began my training in music at age 3 ! With my oldest on the cusp of his 3rd birthday, I’m so excited to be able to now do the same for him.

1990-2018; Growing up in front of a piano

My oldest has been super receptive to it & now nearly every time I start to play piano in one room he’ll start playing on a piano in another…DUELING PIANOS ! He’ll even request to hear certain songs & has asked for a trumpet, violin & baby baby grand piano all his own. I hope his interest in music continues to grow, but for now, I’ll cherish these snapshots of his very first violin lesson (with someone other than me).
