So, this week we had tests and auditions to join the local conservatoire. I took part in it, and despite making a few mistakes during the practical exam, I stumbled upon this:

I know it's in portuguese, but basically what that means is I was the only one to get max scores at both tests. I can't express how happy I am! 

I guess I have a lot to thank to you guys at fiddlerman.com; if it wasn't for this community I'd never be as good as I am today. I'd like to thank @Fiddlerman in special for teaching us the violin so well.

I am very happy about this, and I wanted to share this victory with you all. :D

I think you need some BADGES!

Awesome work there. I know how hard it is to play well. 1st-place

Yeah, I do think there are some badges missing here and there, but I don't really know what badges exactly so I didn't chase after them; I didn't want to give FM more work anyway. :P

Thanks, @cdennyb !

I enjoy giving the badges augustoad. Just let me know all that apply. It's hard for me to keep up so the help (requests) is appreciated. I know that you should get the group project badge.
