Decisions, decisions...

Even though it doesn't seem like it, Haley is growing. Her violin teacher suggested it was time to move up to a 1/2 size fiddle.

Wednesday we went to David Michie's Violins. David brought out  eight different instruments for Haley to try and she quickly narrowed down her choices to these three.

She spent her hour lesson on Friday, playing the different instruments, listening to her teacher play them, then closing our eyes and listening to them being played. Haley initially had her heart set on a 1928 instrument but we discovered that there was a newer one she played better. On Sunday, we took them to her fiddle teacher to give his opinion which was basically the same as the violin teacher's.

So, she will be getting the darker, reddish instrument on the left of that photo. The difference in sound from her 1/4 size fiddle is amazing.
