Ready for first violin lesson

Ready for first violin lesson

Violin has commenced and we’ve even done our first bit of practice. Challenging for me as teacher and mum but I am learning so much. I can see lots of rewards are going to be required 🙂 First video to follow shortly.



Welcome back everyone!


Welcome back to Music 4 Mini Maestros Colourstrings Classes!

Great to see you all again and what a great start to the year. 

One of my favourite stages of development here at Music 4  Mini Maestros

is when our wee 2 – 3 year olds graduate into the 3 – 4 year old class. 

What a great group we have this year: 

  • First class back and you all sat on your own, allowing mums to have a quiet coffee at Massimos. 
  • You all sang out and joined in well.
  • Great drumming in our orchestra.

I’m really excited to be working with you all! 

Mums: here are some of the songs and rhymes we worked on today because I know you are going to be feeling left out: 

Caterpillar crawling round (ss mm ss m)

Trying not to make a sound (ss mm ss m)

Comes a blackbird from the sky (ss mm ss m)

Caterpillar say goodbye (sf mr dd d )

Hope you can decipher the solfa

Here’s a rhyme: Hush little baby 

The suns in the West

The sheep in the meadow 

Have lain down to rest

Starlight star bright

First star I see tonight

Wish I may

Wish I might

Have the wish I wish tonight
