I am lucky to have such a good teacher. He helped me develope the first movement of Bruch from that "first major concerto" sound that I had with my old teacher into a more "mature" (I suppose that might not be the right word) sound.

Unfortunately, my teacher will be gone for about a month this summer. He is going to Italy. Luckily, that is the month that I will have Fraklin Pond Chamber Music. That's bad that I don't get to ask my teache rquestions about the music, but I will have other teachers at FPCM.

Today, my teacher went over the way I stand and the way I hold my instrument up. It helped to relieve so much stress and tension. It even got rid of my jaw tension (which has bothered me for on and off for the past few months).

I am listening to the Lalo Cello Concerto in d right now. It is a pleasant piece. I really like it.

How many of you just play one instrument?
