Here's a video of my violin ensemble class, I teach in a public school and these are all my students from eleven to fourteen years old, they are 19 they all play violin but there two playing cello and one playing viola in this piece.

The tune is a song by Ed Sheeran, I choose it because they all love his songs, and this particular one dedicated to his grandmother  is reminiscent of Irish dances.

I'm very proud of my young violinists: they are all so nice and they really did a great work on this piece (consider that some of them started playing just last october and during this year we had many months on on line lessons due to covid restrictions...)

I always say that they give to me much more than I give to them: looking this video I'm once more sure of it!

Cool...they sound good, Paolo! It must really be a great thing to have the know-how and opportunity to teach young musicians!

Thanks so much for sharing this and your performer videos, Paolo.  I didn't realize you were pedagogue track as well.

Your students are very well instructed; it sounded like there was violin 1, 2, and 3 parts? All had good intonation to my ear.

I appreciate schools that have orchestra programs--mine did not, only band. So I played trumpet until graduation.

Well done!

Definitely a privilege to play a part in shaping a young person’s life with music. They have a good teacher, I hope they all take advantage of it. They sound very good.
