The violin exams are over! I don’t know why I do this kind of stress to myself and my students every year. As previously mentioned, I’m going to have a precondition in future: They have to have worked through a book of studies of my prescription before being allowed to enter for a specific exam. Because I notice it every year. They need a much more solid, reliable technical flooring. Exams cook one’s brain, they take a student who can play quite well and turn him into a quivering mess.
They played bravely though; and one thing that I’m quite proud of is their sound production and projection, which is great (as compared to other students I hear that play rather timidly).
My own two “wild thangs”: Meggi’s turn to go in; Ray: “Bye-bye, Meggi… I’ll put violets on your grave…”
