Velociraptor Claws and Rainbows Make the Best Music

What does a velociraptor have to do with a rainbow? Everything, if you're talking about finger position and music! Give your kids a visual reminder for the correct finger position every time they pick up a guitar or violin. Their hands should be curved like little rainbows or claws, so they're playing the instruments with the tips of their fingers.
