Good news!

Taken on the day of the music exam...a few hours before 
The most scary sign of the day

I took the grade 6 exam a year ago and failed. That dented the musical spirit for a few months. But I didn't factor in my teacher being a determined sweet soul who soldiered on and despite failing to dissuade me to repeat this potentially traumatic ( for both her and self) experience, went on to give me extra classes and schedule classes to suit my erratic work schedule. The exam itself had some excruciating flashbacks which made me nervous. I had a jolly time trying to calm the nerves and the first few bars of the first song was played while on auto mode.  This despite being more prepared technically this time around. Nerves I tell you.....are nasty things!!!!!

So a big thank you and I'm very glad not to have disappointed her this year. Grade 6 violin exam passed second attempt:)
