Scales? Is she a fish?
Great attitude: Retreat usefully. Even moms can’t complain about THAT!
In two years she should be more than twice as good.
I remember trying to learn chromatic scales on the clarinet. I can only imagine how they would sound on a violin.
When I had to practice on my violin, the folks went outside to work on the yard or just relax on the patio.
I hated the violin. But I was sick and home from school the day the instruments were handed out, so I was stuck with it.
Headphones are a thing that exists.
I cannot summon a chuckle , sigh , …
Look on the bright side, your sister could’ve taken up the drums.
Hubs keeps saying Frazz looks like Calvin (minus Hobbes). Anyone else see that?
That is true. You never outgrow practicing your scales and it’s never fun to listen to (even though there are ways to make it fun actually doing).
A half hour a day and an hour a day two years from now? She’s going to get really good.
she must not be getting any better.
Take up the clarinet, the screeching will be hair raising revenge.
My son plays cello and piano for 20 years now. Scales take about 30 seconds, always have.
Too much violins in this comic.
My baby sister took violin lessons for a few years when we were kids; it was far worse than when my son was learning drums!
Forget the scales, Kiddo. In two years it’ll be Hanon…
With the greater heat trapping effect from more GHG’s the water cycle is faster and so in some places are getting heavier snow falls now.
