Suzuki Method, which encourages parents to learn with their kids and take an active role...so I did. I got a bit of a late start, but I've been to a couple of lessons now and I'm catching up. I love having my musical brain engaged again (and the violin I'm renting is pretty rock 'n roll). The teacher is fantastic.
It's been cool to play with Ivy, although we've been getting on each other's nerves already. She loves playing, and beams with pride when she has success, but she resists suggestions to practice and frequently gets frustrated when things don't come easily. Tonight she refused to even try Mary Had a Little Lamb because it was "too hard" (she didn't know how to play it)...then proceeded to learn it by ear in about two minutes. I hope we can keep finding ways to make it fun so she sticks with it.
Update: My ever-generous mom just got us tickets to see a spring concert by James Ehnes, a Canadian (and Manitoban) virtuoso. Watching him play in this video is unreal; both inspiring and overwhelming for someone just learning to scratch out a dozen warbling notes and trying to combine them into "songs". Wow.
