Subject: posture, written in formal writing in case you want to post it to future students lol to show your own age…
After 4 years…………
Dear Mr. Lecher,
I don't mind admitting that I'm wrong, but with regards to viola posture I am somewhat reluctant, partly because I was so sure that I was right--in that there was no difference in results between holding the instrument up or down. However, recently I began to practice with the instrument up, and I actually did notice a significant difference in the quality and expressivity of my playing. Thank you and you were right. Haha.
Ha, you 'have seen the light'!!!Now imagine that it will help you 10 squared. At the time you couldn't hear the difference I was immediately hearing. I had that problem when my teachers would correct something that I hadn't heard……then I heard it and it made a huge difference.Just don't be so 'pigheaded' about taking advice for your benefit in the future…………………now, about that little bitty practice you do, and for such a big boy, too:-)))))))))))D.This was from and to a graduating senior. It is never too late to fix posture—it works better, sounds better and, if only for vanity, looks better!!!Play on—Drew
Cute story and very true!
