Desperate violin practise session
Violin on ottoman on a Sunday afternoon
I have the best violin teacher. She tolerates my lack of practice and encourages us to improve with various tactics. This is her latest; mini concert of all her students on a Sunday afternoon. These pictures ( above and below) were taken during the panic-laden practise session just before leaving home for the concert. The parents were banned from the concert. So was WNN.
Vivace by Teleman( fast and furious)
A great great relief when it was over. I botched up the ending and really played a mediocre rendition of teleman had he been alive, he would have keeled over at bar 4-5. But what this mini concert has achieved is my sudden need to improve fast. So kudos to my violin teacher who organized this and got us to be excited in music all over again.
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.
Edina Monsoon has an Mb Bch Bao degree. Following a 3-year stint in the great Malaysian outback (Tawau, Sabah) she now lives and works in Kuala Lumpur where she contributes to the traffic on a daily basis. She has moved towards a more arty-farty lifestyle with blogging ( roll eyes ) and is now attempting to gain recognition as a more than adequate amateur violin player.
God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
