Oh, How I Love Jesus | Violin, Piano Duet

I have enjoyed teaching violin the last couple of years. Before we moved, I had about four violin students. But at the time being, I have thirteen violin students (one video student in Nigeria!). One of my favorite things to do is to arrange hymns for them to play in church. I love that most of my students strongly desire to share their music for God’s glory.
Here is one that I recently arranged for a student to play (recorded by myself).

Take My Life, and Let it Be | Violin Quartet

Another first for WAJN: Violin quartet. 🙂 I have enjoyed arranging for string ensembles for a few years now, but as with most things, I tend to do it when I have a specific reason to do it. Well, now with about ten violin students, I have a reason! We have a homeschool tea coming up, and one of the coordinators asked if I could get a few of my students to pull something together. The theme of the tea is “Celebrating our Individuali-tea.” I thought there was no better hymn to use than “Take My Life,” because no matter how different we are, God can still use our lives for His purposes.

I recorded myself (double and triple 😉 ) so that everyone could hear the song as a completion.

If you’re interested in the music, it can be purchased here.
 
Do you play violin? If so, have you ever played in an ensemble or orchestra?
