A supremely busy week has me just getting around to noting something wonderful. Twinkle Twinkle notwithstanding, I have begun to play my first classical piece of music – a Bach Minuet. When I started down the violin road, people would ask me, “Are you going to play fiddle or violin.” The answer is violin. I want to play classical music. And now I am doing it.
Also in the lesson, Teacher confirmed the savage Chicago winter is at least partly responsible for my difficulty in tuning. She had trouble with my A string too, and applied a compound to the peg while re-winding it around the peg to make it more usable.
It was another great lesson.
Thanks for reading.
