Philip Smith

It's been a busy few weeks. Lots of back-to-school repairs and feverishly working to finish the violin and cello.

The varnishing is always tricky but I am pretty happy with the results.

Another cello is underway as the wood arrived from Germany a couple of weeks ago.

The trip to the capital to show off the instruments in the white gave some really positive feedback.

My eldest son has begun his double bass career. He is about to turn 8 and is playing an 1/8th size instrument. So far he has mastered holding the instrument and can play 'Twinkle. Twinkle Little Star' in two lessons.

He's a natural - of course.
