Teague inherited her great grandfather's musical genes, she plays guitar and violin like a natural. I started violin quite late in life but have sadly packed it in since arthritis took over. Nevertheless Teague and I were able to play the odd duet and had fun. Making the violin was a huge challenge, especially the scroll and overcoming the poor choice of materials. The final presentation to an unexpecting family gathering made it so worthwhile, a special moment in my life.
For my granddaughter Teague before they emigrated to New Zealand in November 2017. Little did I know that the choice of material would be so challenging, the West Indian Satinwood was beautiful, but hard & difficult to work, the Boire looked great too but too late I found that it was not resilient.
