I think music is art which can make people emotional. When I signed up for playing in the orchestra I didn't know what I was signing up for. I only joined because of my friends, but now I am happy I made this decision. I would like to carry on and play the violin in the future.
The teachers have made playing our instruments a lot of fun. We have learnt lots of music and my favourite pieces are Mamma Mia and Tironui Cripple Creek. This year we also came first in the Lewis Eady competition and won gold!!!
My experience of playing the violin was wonderful. We went to different places, listened to other bands, played with other orchestras, played for our school, as well as prime ministers and mayors!!! My parents were very proud of me.
