I am so, so, so excited that for fifth grade, my daughter chose to join orchestra. She will be playing the Viola! I tried suggesting the violin, because it might be easier, but she insisted that the viola sounds better. I ordered it this evening to rent, and it will be delivered to her at her school. Hooray! I'm so excited, because I never learned an instrument, nor have I even learned to read music. My child is a superstar.
