Last week, the violin teacher came into our classroom. Her name is Julia. She taught us the parts of the violin and showed us a video on how the violin is made. After, she brought us to Halla Veronica and showed us the violins. She showed us how to hold the violin and bow and the string notes of the violin too. At the end, we bowed to finish the lesson. It’s very exciting to be learning how to play the violin!!!
