Lessons from a Master

As classes begin again at the Academy of the Performing Arts, many exciting new opportunities are arising for violin prodigy Jonathan Evans. He’s been accepted into a master class taught by Bennett Rizzo, formerly first violinist with the National Simerian Orchestra.

Kat Phillips has now expressed an interest in the violin, too, so she often accompanies Jonathan when Mr. Rizzo conducts workshops. Jonathan enjoys being with Kat, but he’s not letting the relationship take any serious turns. He still wants to enjoy his new-found freedom and get to know some of the other young women at the Academy.

He’s especially interested in Fiona Patterson. Although she’s a cello major, she also attends some of Mr. Rizzo’s classes on music theory. He’s a true master! Or maybe she just likes being around Jonathan. They do seem to have a lovely little flirtation going on between them, at least when Kat’s not looking.

Jonathan doesn’t plan on giving his heart away too easily. Along with Kat and Fiona, there are many more romantic possibilities to explore. He’s found that flirting is great fun, especially when the girls flirt back, and most of them do, you know.

Of course, he’s got his violin, too. Making beautiful music is almost like falling in love.  Oh, the emotions that can be conveyed through a beautiful song. Music truly does have its charms, and Jonathan is learning to use them to his advantage.
