Okay people, it’s everything the press release said. ‘Crazy Classics with Sid Bowfin’ was BRILLIANT! We had an absolute blast. The cub was still humming to the tunes and singing “what’s in da bag?” when we got home. (You gotta watch to know!)
It was refreshing to learn more about music and the usually boring classics in quirky ways Sid came up with! The cub was excited to hear familiar pieces on the violin instead of piano, and was totally impressed by how Sid can play all the different tunes without the need to referring to the scores. That, fellow parents, is our cue to reinforce how important diligent practice is to learning a music instrument. 😉 For those learning string instruments, be inspired by how adept Sid is with the violin and how flexible he is too.
There are plenty of opportunities to interact up close with Sid and be part of the performance. Sid is extremely engaging, so bring the kids to catch him in action! They are going to have such an awesome time, they just might ask for music classes.
