More viola?

And I thought yesterday was viola-filled! I taught for eight full hours today... in a nine-hour period of time. My throat hurts.

I just got an email from the American Viola Society with a link to the following event at the University of Tennessee: Viola Celebration, anyone? I definitely can't make it this year, but it sounds like a wonderful opportunity to explore all things VIOLA!

I am so ecstatic about the quality and capacity of this wonderful group of students with which I have the honor of working this year. I think I will make a positive difference in the viola lives of these individuals, and I am so thrilled to do so. I actually had one student say to me today, "You just blew my mind!" after I explained to her how to sound amazing without working very hard. Thank you for this opportunity, Texas Tech!

And so the adventure begins!

Happy practicing.
