You know you’ve picked the right violin teacher when the week of the performance your only assignment is to play the piece in as many awkward venues as possible, to overcome your performance anxiety. It’s probably the first time these four places have ever been serenaded. Performing in the gallery this weekend amongst my paintings should feel much more comfortable by comparison!
