“The violin is an extraordinary instrument, it does take time to learn and when you learn how to play the violin it sounds amazing. I enjoy practicing with everyone. I am not that fond of going to concerts, I get afraid although by the end I feel amazing. The teachers are very good, and can be funny! I love it.”

Hazel Marr, Shoalhaven Junior Strings, Violin
