Short term pain for long term gain

I have profound admiration for the parents of any child learning violin (or any instrument requiring manual intonation) – rewards are life long but the early days/weeks/months of practice must be tough…

How adorable is this version of 2001 theme – often miscredited to a ‘child orchestra’ – was actually a real ’normal’ orchestra, but everyone tried swapping instruments…

And another version by Portsmouth Sinfonia, with swapped instruments

Incredible professionalism to perform like this & not burst out laughing!
