Away from work for a few days
Picture taken a few years ago..when I had LONG hair...and was obsessed with vivaldi .
Am away from work for 4 days. Not for recreational purposes but to do some last minute ( and much needed) violin practice before the exam this Thursday ( swoon). Pieces are much more stable. ( fewer slips...but trying to memorise the notes ) The scales are still a problem. Haven't gotten to the stage of smoothness and as for the bloody (aargh) arpeggios the shifting positions work only half the time. Found this brilliant PDF file on sigh-singing for FREE. and it's been helpful because it starts easy and gradually becomes more difficult.And its about the time of the year when I ask myself " WHY do I put myself through this stress???" Stress-free from Thursday evening onwards. The exam is at Prince Hotel this year. Hopefully no jam...and no icy cold air-con to stiffen the fingers up.
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.
