It is no secret that we are full into music. My girls play the violins, my son plays guitar(both electric and acoustic) and my husband play saxophone and guitars as well. Me, on the other hand, nothing! I have nothing; I am not the least bit musically inclined! My girls violin teacher gets a bit frustrated with me because she has to constantly remind me of something that she has likely told me 12 times already. I just don't get music, I love to listen to it; but can not play any sort of anything.
This year marks the fifth year my girls will be playing their violins! We have hit a milestone for sure. Last year, my oldest daughter played in two youth orchestras and had a love - hate relationship with the work. Because practicing every single day for two hours is a lot of work for a child. This year, we made orchestras mandatory AND we had the little sister audition as well. She made both orchestras! Such a music milestone for her! She is the youngest in her symphony youth orchestra and we are so proud of her.
I think having each other in the orchestras is helping them both. They can practice together and there is a bit of healthy competition there. My girls have so much to celebrate this year in music. They have crossed so many mini milestones musically.
Did you know Netflix also has many movies and TV episodes that highlight a variety of childhood achievements and mini milestones? You can watch with your children and they can have perfect examples of how working hard can lead to achieving goals. Whatever firsts your family is celebrating this fall, Netflix can relate.
