Vivaldi at five

It's not a race. It's never a race. It's about how you play, not what you play. It's about becoming a violinist, not consuming repertoire. It's not about how old you are, or how advanced for your age. None of that. It's about growing as a human being through the discipline of music study.

But I will say this. I am amazed and proud to be the mom of a 5-year-old girl who is growing as a human being through the study of Vivaldi's violin concerto in a minor.

Vivaldi always feels like the real thing, the beginning of the big time. Go Fiona!


  1. Wow! What an event! Enjoy the a minor, Fiona.

  2. OK so it's not a race, but you and Fiona should both enjoy the pride of this accomplishment. Bravo!
