Normally I have lessons on Tuesday, but last week Teacher needed to reschedule. So we did it Thursday night instead. And I forgot to blog about it.
I demonstrated that I’d practiced the piece from the week before (I’m going to start referring to songs by name; we’re using Suzuki book one, and this was “Song of the Wind”). This lesson I learned “Go Tell Aunt Rhody”, and Teacher played “O Come Little Children” for me to learn. She looked at the clock and said the lesson was over. I thought time had gone by faster than I’d realized. As I was driving home she texted me: “I read the clock wrong and I owe you 15 minutes! I’m so sorry!” So tomorrow’s lesson is going to be longer.
I’m supposed to be working on my bowing. I feel like I’m total crap at it. The cats judge me, by the way. Every time I do the bow wrong they bolt from the room, returning only when I sound more normal. (I say “more” because I am still terrible. It’s the screechy noises they run from.)
“O Come Little Children” reminds me of the Blackadder theme. Well, a very simple version of it. Made me laugh to realize it. I need to practice it a bunch today so I don’t sound like a clod tomorrow…
