A viola milestone

Tonight I transcribed a piece of cello music (bass clef) into alto clef so I could play it on viola. This is a big step forward.

A couple of days ago read Petrina's advice (see comments below) about not worrying about what the notes were called. Now I just focus on playing them. I can read notes on the G, D, and A strings pretty well. Thanks Petrina!

I also had my first lesson today. Bow hold, it seems, is important. Something to work on.


  1. Ian (a viola player) says that bow hold IS important. This is one reason I gave up on trying to learn cello and decided that I would just follow my heart and get a saxophone. :-)
