Teacher's Reward: EUREKA!!!

June 26, 2009 19:49

From a 13 year old pupil, a eureka moment:-) 

Dear Mr. Lecher,

I was playing through  the caprice when my mind suddenly took a turn.  After playing the first measure, my brain seemed to take in everything-every shift, every note, and every rhythm.  I started noticing patterns and applied the patterns to other passages.  It was unbelievable how easy it was to play the violin.  I whipped through the caprice and again and again.  I started really loving the violin and how it sounded and came together.  This was probably the first time I have experienced it.  Now I really [know] why you stress about thinking while your playing.  Thinking while your playing is really powerful and helpful!!!
