Thankful for Music Education
By Christine Suter
NY is a state that has always had many strong school orchestra programs and for that reason I’m thankful to have grown up here. Even though it seems like a million years ago, I can still remember when I was in third grade and the sixth grade orchestra played a concert for us in our school gymnasium. After the concert the conductor demonstrated for us how each instrument was played and how it sounded. We were then invited to sign up to learn how to play one of the instruments and I immediately chose the violin. I was lucky in that playing the violin came naturally to me and I was always able to play songs by ear. I also remember that I always wanted to play everything faster than it was meant to played, which is probably why I love fiddle music so much.
