“I played quartets today where I had to come in alone on the second note of a fast triplet... bingo, I got it. That was a huge breakthrough. Also just did the Mozart, and found...when I played it at tempo, I thought of heading for the third note, and I got it! Great lesson, thank you so much. These are all things that have been obstacles for years!”
