I had my first lesson of 2019 today. It was wonderful! My setup has a lot to do with it. I am so comfortanle with my instrument.
Another factor, in my mind, is the two week break. I had two weeks to work on my bowing and intonation. I worked endlessly on my bowing. Jer made me little thingys for my bow that helped immensely, I now play without them, but they helped me learn the bow hold. Cannot wait for the Holstein wood viola bow I ordered to use with my violin to arrive. I do find the viola bow suits me better. My instructor said mamy violinsts use a vila bow.
My instructor was very impressed with my bowing arm today, hope it was nor a fluke!
She is also going add the song I downloaded to the somgs and we went through her books to find good ones for me. This was an excellent lesson.
They call me, “Mellow Cello”
