Oops! Remember the time I almost sat on your violin?
This is a great video to share with the children!
Potter Violin Company has an amusing short video to show your children things NEVER to do with or to their violin. These are good reminders for all of us as we live our busy lives.
We account for all the children before we put the car in reverse. But, have you ever backed over someone’s bike left in the driveway? Or tripped on a toy left in a place you weren’t expecting? Or vacuumed up some small plastic creatures?
Learning how to care for the violin and the bow is an opportunity for children to grow. It seems so simple a task to care for important items. But it doesn’t come naturally. Children learn respect by caring for things that matter. Remind them we don’t treat the violin as a toy.
