Through the highs and the lows, this screechy wooden box stuck with you through it all. Here are the things you'll only know if you learned violin at school.
It was a 1/4 size Stentor, wasn't it.
Let's be honest, this black magic was the only way we could play in tune.
This means we're semi-professional now, right?
Bright purple, sparkly pink… You know who you are, and yes, we're still jealous.
So squidgy, so comfy. Also: gross.
Well this isn't comfy at all. Can we have our sponge back?
We *never* did this on purpose so our lesson would be shorter.
This was pre-orchestra survival of the fittest.
And having to pretend it wasn't you.
This was a whole new world of confusion. Second position, fourth position? We'll just stick to the good old classics, thanks.
“Sorry. Sorry again. Oh, was that your face? Sorry.”
