To conclude with Ireland, something a bit different.
As my friend @seba4c and I were walking down the street in Dublin after a good @burgerking, we saw a crowd forming in the street. As we got closer, we realized there was a young woman performing. It was the beautiful and talented @meglagrande singing and playing music. We stayed for a bit and enjoyed the show. If you ever cross her path, be sure to stay and listen, you won't regret it :)

I am here to say THANK YOU to all 9️⃣0️⃣ thousand of you out there supporting me and following my journey 🤯. And I couldn’t have thought of a better backdrop than the two greatest violinists of the 20th century. Seriously though, you guys are the people that I do this for, the ears and the hearts and the kind souls of yours that are on the other, receiving end of my creative process. I am so grateful for everything that Instagram has brought to my life, the exceptional humans it has introduced me to, and the wild ride it has taken me on. Thank you, each and every one of you for the time you put into listening to and watching what I do and appreciating what I share. It is so important. Now off to 100K! Love, ~A _____________________________________________________________ 📷 @courtenaycleary #musique#violinist#musica#musiclover#violin#musiciansofinstagram#classicalmusic#creativeprocess#performingartist#violino#juilliard#manhattan#milestone#thankyousomuch#girlpower

These videos show the transition from pinky house to no pinky house! As you can see, her thumb is inside and is moving really well already, and the top four fingers really know what they are doing. She is working to make sure her pinky is heavy enough. I love her elbow motion and opening and closing. Fantastic student 💫⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟
I am so honored to have received this Award for the #BestPerformanceOnaRealityTVShow 🙏🏽❤️🎻 Thank you @nationalfilmawards for this recognition. 2 years ago I moved from France to the USA to follow my Dreams. Today I dedicate this award to all the little girls with big dreams. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something! Thank you mom for all the sacrifices you made to afford my violin lessons while raising five daughters as a single mother. A huge THANKS to all my fans who have been supporting me during my journey. Thank you God for always having my back.
I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH ❤️ I am so happy!!! #Mapy#ViolinQueen 🎻👑
