Since Zoe has been a toddler, she has always told us that she wanted to play violin; I think her obsession with it began when she was watching Little Einsteins. I never took any sort of music lessons, but Alex plays guitar and has been a vocalist in many bands and still writes and performs music to this day, so music is in Zoe’s blood. I think music lessons are extremely beneficial for children: it increases academic skills as well as discipline and most importantly gives a child a sense of culture.
We recently got Zoe a beautiful, and I mean beautiful, violin from Rozanna’s Violins. These violins are basically any little girl’s dream instrument. They are made of solid spruce and maple and feature insane artwork. When you think of violins, you may think that a quality instrument is too expensive to purchase. These violins retail for under four hundred dollars making them affordable for any family with a future virtuoso on their hands.

The designer, Rozanna Weinberger is an accomplished musician herself, having worked with many of the world’s greatest musicians. She believes music is a right and not a privilege and offers awesome free violin tutorial’s on her YouTube channel.
I don’t have Zoe signed up for lessons just yet because her school is going to start a program soon with a local strings orchestra just for 5 and 6 year-olds which I hope to get her a spot in. How old were your children when they started music lessons? Any pointers for me?
