Teacher's Reward: EUREKA!!!

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!!!
I think we all live for those moments!
That's what happenes alot with a high caliber teacher like Drew.
Aww, that's so very cool.
