Had my AUSTA String festival today. Played ok, I had some Memory lapses, but coped fairly well. My teacher now knows what I need to work on, so that will be cool.

Comments from the Adjudicator:
Posture: Exellent
Left Hand Tech: Good Shape
Bow Hold/Arm: Good Full Use of Bow
Tone: Pure Sound
Intonation: Generally Good - But some care needed with Double Stops
Phrasing: Natural Phrasing
Rhythm: Good Sense of Rhythm
Dynamics: Perhaps more Variation
Style: Good use of Upper Half of Bow
Interpretation: Good Style - But wanted more variation in textures
Stage Presence: Good Solid Presence
Memory: Well Done. Coped will with small slips.

Overall: Excellent (Out of Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding).
