First violin lesson after my teacher's two week vacation. Practised the Allegro from Franck's violin sonata faithfully during the last weeks, especially the bars where every other note is an incidental. Also, heeded advise from a book and practised from back to front, so as to get a tailwind while performing.
Since it was hot and very humid, I pawed all over the finger board during the introduction, even missing some of the easy shifts. Still have to work a lot on my bowing - not close enough to the bridge, too timid.
Anyway, he pointed out the improvements in many areas and then we tackled the tough parts note for note and bar by bar again.
