    He is growing up quickly ,he is catching up with Lisa very fast size wise and he is (in my opinion) so lucky to have such a natural talent for music that he probably get from his maternal grandfather. I am very envious of it and I always swore that if either of my boys wanted to learn then we'd do anything we could to support them.

    It just seems to come so easily and naturally to him

    He is leading the 2nd violins in a big concert at the Congress in eastbourne on Friday and although he is now 10 there isn't a player in the whole orchestra that is under 14 years old I think - doesn't dound a lot but at that age 4 years is quite a large jump for sure..

    I just hope he sticks with it as it must be a wonderful release and a way to convey your emotions in life

    Very surprised Tom didn't comment on th imac reflection I have to say ;)

    4 years at that age is a monumental difference. Which is his favorite instrument?

    Hmmm , he loves botha nd TBH would also like to play cello , brass and anything else we geta flyer about at school as well but there just isn't the time/money

    Piano is a solitary thing and he likes to bash away at that and its easy to play immediatedly needs no setting up and we'll often hear him tinkling away .

    However the violin is much more sociable and he is really really excited about playing a full 10 minute + piece with a full orchestra behind him on Friday so I guess thats not really an answer
