Alden has been practicing like a champ and really making strong headway with his violin. We thought Elliott might be ready to start about a year ago, because of his earnest interest in what he saw Alden doing. However over the course of the year Elliott proved to be an unreliable practicer, so a couple months back we stopped taking him to lessons and will wait and see how he develops his dedication.
Elliott still likes to noodle around with a violin sometimes, and especially when he sees Alden being silly, like with his practice for an upcoming concert. The Pop Goes The Weasel doesn't showAlden at his best... especially with the silliness, but it is great to see the two kids playing together.
