Huh, forgot to post this last week.

While I had the viola out of the case for a bit of screwing around, I got zero focussed practice last week on account of a meltdown at work and spending a bunch more time with the kids to take some of the stress of other events off of other family members.

Despite this lack of practice, my slurs have apparently improved, and my note reading & intonation on the G-string is not bad. Need more work on divvying up the bow for slurs, giving full bows for each un-slurred note, and keeping the bow from drifting up or down the strings.

I good news, I now have a key for my instructor's studio, so I can practice during the day at times when it's not being used for other lessons. Being able to duck out at lunchtime and break out the viola is something I'm really looking forward to. =D =D =D
