I have a hunch that every child is suited to a different instrument. We’re not all made for fiddle, flute or double base. Each instrument suits a different character…get it wrong and the child will eventually dig in the heals and resist big time. I did with the violin ..I’ve always found anything played on the e string painful. Tom, I think, is a blower…whether it’s trumpet, horn or bag pipes, he’s born to blow (a lot of hot air) and here he is proudly practising the Highland pipes. He’s still at a very early stage and I think you will probably be grateful for no accompanying sound clips.
