First lesson in three weeks -- missed one lesson on account of going to Chicago for Drupalcon, and a second on account of March break. Didn't get a chance to practice anywhere near as much as I would have liked in the interim -- locked my practice materials in the car while in Chicago, and I spent March break glued to the coverage of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake when I wasn't peeling the kids off of the walls. While I haven't improved a lot in the past weeks, I haven't lost much either; I was surprised how easily many of the songs in the book came back to me when I've been playing nothing but scales and tunes from memory all week.

To work on for next week: slurs (still), starting in on the G string (woot!) and bringing the fourth finger into play (double woot!) Things are really starting to get to the point where you have to stretch for notes now, and while the challenge is fun, I'm still left with the feeling that things would be much easier if my fingers were just a millimetre or two longer....
