The violin is an instrument that is often synonymous with grace, beauty, and peace. Why is it then that finding a violin to buy can be frustrating, getting your kid to practice takes nagging, and beginning violinists often sound like a dying cat?

Hi, I'm Steph, a violinist, mother of five, devoted wife, teacher, and passionate advocate for music in the home. I believe all kids should play an instrument. I also understand personally how hard that can me, I've got crying kids, piled up laundry, and 'write practice charts' on my daily to-do list as proof. 

Whether you are here to find an instrument, creative practice tips, great music, violin how-to's, or simply want some good reading material while you wait to pick your kid up from school, I'm here for you. So sit back, relax, take a break from food blogs and jump into my place where violin is the new chocolate.
