Since my little Gypsy boy was 3 years old (he is 5 years old now) he has asked to play the violin.
We thought the violin would require way more fine motor skills than our boy could handle at 3, so we enrolled him in piano.
A friend of ours who plays fiddle in a bluegrass band said, “What are you doing? If the boy wants to play violin, let him play violin. Piano lessons are useless for him.”
So, at the advice of our well trained friend, we asked our Gypsy boy if he still wanted to play violin. He said, “yes” without hesitation.
There is a wonderful musician who uses space at our church for lessons and she will be instructing our Gypsy boy on the violin.
I wonder what inspired him to have such a knowing about the music he wanted to play. Was it something we read, something he saw, something he heard?
Or is it simply a knowing? Acknowledging the need to try something and never letting go of the vision? Still, I could stand to learn something from this little boy of mine.
Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
