dirty Fila has been playing the violin since the 4th grade. Now she wants to stop playing. She goes to high school next year and she has informed me that she no longer wants to play a stringed instrument. Can we say violin war? Can we say Hell No! I think that it is very important for kids to have some extra curricular activities. It looks good on college resumes and it helps them to be more well rounded.
I reviewed her sign up sheet for next year and she had drama down as her special area. We had a long discussion and I changed it back to strings. She was not happy but she turned it in. Later about a week ago, she let it slip that she had changed it back to drama before turning it in. Now parents had to sign that. I will be looking into that for this fall. She needs to be taking strings. She has come to far to stop now. When she gets to college if she does not want to play, then make that change.
She needs to wear her violin shoes for just a little longer!
What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
