Second grade students at Polk Central Elementary have been studying tone color and families of instruments with music teacher Beth Packer.
On Mov. 6, students were treated to a special visit from professional violinist and teacher Sharon Lawrence of Rutherford County.
Lawrence taught the students about string instruments, performed a variety of musical numbers on her violin and then finished the performance by having some of the students play along with her.
Those students all had a memorable day playing violin for the very first time.
