Ants

I believe I’ve already told you that Chloe is in the Suzuki Strings programs at her new school. She is learning to play cello! And she loves it. She is doing really well so far practicing her rhythms, her finger strengthening exercises, and lots of other stuff.

She finally got her cello yesterday and has learned to pluck her first song — The Ant Song. (She won’t use the bow on the cello for quite some time … Suzuki is quite ordered and deliberate in its approach.) The Ant Song helps the cello students learn the strings of their instrument: A, D, G, and C.

Here is Chloe, the cellist, playing her new cello song for Dad and the boys. Excuse the sight of us in our pjs and all the background noise and Paul’s vertical video and all the other distracting things in this video!
