Dogwood Session 2
Tuesday, October 25 was our second session at Dogwood. I was excited to have four of my students come to class, including a Spanish speaking student. It was very helpful to have a mentor who was fluent in Spanish to help me translate. I was pleasantly surprised by how prepared their homework was after being relatively new to them, which was to name the parts of the violin. We spent some of our time reviewing our open strings, and I taught them left hand posture and finger placements on the fingerboard. As I was teaching them, it was enjoyable to see how attentive, interested, and engaged they were in the lessons. It was amazing to see all 14 of our teen mentors spread throughout the cafeteria, watching as they interact with their students.
