We’re still suffering through gray skies with light snow flurries. The days are getting noticeably longer but all that leads to is more gray.
I put in two full hours of cello playing today, and it went really good! I seemed to hit the right notes and made some nice sounds. I found myself doing most of my posture fixes more often than not. I am still having trouble with my bow hold. At times the bow seems to fit properly in my hand, but then after a bit, I’ll notice my hand is wrong again. Sometimes I can get it back, but sometimes it’s more of a struggle. Also, my thumb doesn’t seem to know where to go. My left arm, hand and fingers seemed to work better today; besides holding the right postures they seemed to find the right notes more often than not.
The music sounded better, cleaner and more like Suzuki’s CD. I made far fewer errors. I just hope I can play that way at my next lesson. After thoroughly working Suzuki, I went into the All for Strings for a while.
