Today I was at my luthier's shop, "Mark Schwartz Violins". I was having some work done on my FM Pernambuco bow.
On his bulletin board I noticed a couple letters written by a couple little girls who have rental violins.
While looking at and sorting out some music books Mark had just received, I pointed out one book that was titled, "Fiddler On The Roof", when I mentioned it to, Mark, he chuckled and told me that is what the first girl, "Penelope" was playing when her bow broke.
I thought these letter's were precious and wanted to share them with the forum. I got kinda choked up and with a smile when I read them.
The next one is from, Jasmine.
@Fiddlestix - nice ! That would choke me up as well, damn near bring a tear to a glass-eye. Kids were probably told to write a nice letter of apology or they would get no dinner that night (is that particular threat allowed nowadays?) - even so - cool !
I particularly like the "I'm So Sorry About Breaking your Bow AGAIN" !!!!! (although, I guess the "Again" could be the start of the next sentence! - whatever - it really made me smile).
Nice find !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
Great to see, whether they felt moved to write them on their own or it was encouraged by parents. In either case, I am sure it was both good parenting skills and good-hearted kids.
