viola post #596

I love it. I'm having trouble with this tricky string crossing passage (2.08) and I tell my teacher. She shows me a technique, somewhere between flapping my hand up and down and turning my wrist in a circle. It feels funny and sounds awful. She says, "Don't worry what it sounds like, just learn the technique and trust that it will work." I don't believe her, but do what she says anyway because I'm a conscientious adult learner... And what do you know? It worked! I can play it now!

It makes me wonder what I might have achieved in life if I had always been this conscientious.

(How kind of someone to record this piece and put it up on youtube for me!)
