Hi everyone!

We had such a great turnout on Monday!  It was a bit chaotic to deal with tuning all of the instruments and rosining bows that had never been rosined, but we got through it and the kids did wonderfully.  Below are some review videos for each of the instruments:

Violin

Viola

Cello

Bass

 

Stay tuned for the challenge videos coming later this week!
