Mia's Violin Recital

What an exciting day. Today Mia had her first violin recital. Her teacher, Ichikawa sensei, organized it in her honor. It was called "Mia's Farewell Recital". Mia was the first to play. She played "Long, long ago, baby" and "Butterfly". She played wonderfully.

A group of students then played "Twinkle Twinkle" together. The youngest violinist was a mere three years old!

Ichikawa sensei did a solo. Her music was so moving that it brought tears to my eyes. I never knew I was such a lover of violin music.

Ichikawa sensei and her students. Mia will really miss her teacher. Ichikawa san used to play for the Vienna Symphony.

Afterwards we went to get cake and drinks to celebrate. Mia's best friend, Mayu-chan joined us.

Thank you Ichikawa sensei for opening up the world of music for our daughter.
