Article: Pre-K violinists hone skills that can aid in math, reading

Check out this great article (and video clip) about Florida Pre-K students learning Violin!

I particularly love the quote from one of our former clinicians:

“This project really isn’t about making them violin players, it’s about making them kindergarten-ready,” said Debbie Fahmie, fine- and performing-arts resource teacher for Osceola schools.

What do you think about this? How old were you when you started playing an instrument?
