Fiddling with violins on Election Day

Whilst the country cast its ballots, celebrating 20 years of democracy, a group of King’s children had their first violin lesson ever with Violinist Pierre Frenzel and voted overwhelmingly in favour of the experience.  One of the participants shared his impressions:

First violin lesson and I can greatly recommend it. I used a dark brown violin. I did more than just enjoy it.  I learned that a violin can be played in two different ways:  with the use of a bow, or by plucking the strings. Mr Frenzel taught us the proper stance to play a violin. There is a scroll on one end of it and a chin rest on the other end.

If I were to play a violin in the morning, during the day and in the evening, I would be first in line all the time!
