Screechy Violin

too loud music
Dear Karly,

How do I get my sister to stop playing her violin if it just screeches all day?

Hi Amy,

Practice makes perfect and she has to practice to do well. It takes time for her to make music that you’ll actually want to hear. It is definitely annoying listening as she practices until then, though.

The one and only thing I can suggest: Don’t listen to her!

You can do that in two ways- either try leaving the house when she’s practicing, or at least go to the furthest room in the house. You can also listen to your own music while she’s playing her violin.

Hang in there, and let me know when she’s a famous violinist!


And always remember: All good things take time to develop!

Good luck,
