With regard to the Scherzo: I learned something interesting at the last lesson – that I’m seriously locking my shoulder instead of just dropping all my weight into the bow.

With scales – continue working on that third octave coming down.  The only nice thing I can say about it is that the harmonic helps me find BOTH A’s, and now I need to work through this until I know it cold and can play it smoothly.

Schroeder has been back-burnered for a while, but it’s coming out again so I can put in a good 7+ hour week of practicing.
