Why You Shouldn't Give Up
Last Saturday was the end of term for my violin classes at Marylebone and Pineapple Performing arts. I had to do two performances to show my family what I have learnt during the term. They're both totally different from one another because at Pineapple I sing, dance and do drama for 3 hours every Sunday and at Marylebone I'm learning to play the violin on a Saturday morning. I love going to Pineapple it's really fun but when I first started to play violin I didn't like it and my mum was saying that it's really important to learn to play instruments when you are young because it's harder when you get older and I might regret it. My dad is a musician/ producer so there's always music being playing in the house. I'm really glad I stuck to it because I really love it now and I'm so excited because Amy my teacher at Marylebone has just put me forward to do my grade 1 violin exam in June and it will be the same time I do my piano grade 2. So there's a lot of practice I need to be doing during the holidays. I tried playing the guitar at school for a bit but didn't like that either so I quit. My mum says I can't give up on piano or violin until I at least get to grade 4 then we can decide if I'm going to carry on. The best thing is passing your grade exam it makes it all worth it so stick with it's definitely worth it. Me and my brother both go ta merit in our piano exam and we both want a distinction next.
