Here is Grade 1 pupil, Mhlava, recording a piece she has been learning during the online lessons. Mhlava started violin lessons with Mrs Kunju at the beginning of last year. This is what she had to say about her music and the current status- quo:

“I love the violin, because the music makes me think of ballet. I’m a huge fan of classical music. Online learning has been a bit tricky, but so much fun, thanks to my teacher Mrs Kunju❤️. And I also get to learn new music almost every 2nd lesson. I also enjoyed practising at home with Mom.”-Mhlava (in her words)
