In the garden a hare is running
Yesterday I boarded a train to Cambridge and after a short bus ride I arrived to meet Nikolay my Russian balalaika teacher. Nikolay studied the balalaika in school and I was very impressed seeing someone in person play this instrument so beautifully. My first lesson was going over the basics and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it. I now own a case for my balalaika which made it easy to carry.
The lesson lasted an hour and a half and I came away with much to practise.Nikolay said he was told "when his mother was making soup he should practise". Today I learnt my first little Russian Folk song called "In the garden a hare is running".
I am now returning to practise after having a short break to write this blog. But I will leave you with a few more photos of the snowdrops.
