Haha, Jaime, guess what my big topic is in practice these days? :) :) 

I was sad yesterday that the idea to make my own version of Happy Birthday was such a late one - I still definitely need more than one day to learn something like this. For example, I have never done double stops out of first position, but needed to do it here to get the notes I wanted. But at the same time it was a very encouraging experience, because I realized that a few months ago when I started in earnest with double stops it would have taken me close to a week to learn this. There are a good number of tritone chords in this. And while they are still often not really in tune (the fingers have to be squished together even more) I find that it has become a LOT easier to do them and does not feel any more like this impossible contortion that will make my hand fall apart or cramp up.

I wanted to record a musical birthday greeting for you, Beth, but last night all of a sudden I had this great idea: Why not record my own version of "Happy birthday" instead of just any other piece I have been working on. Well, I guess it wasn't such a great idea after all - just a few hours before it needed to be recorded... :). 

Please take it as a sign of trust, Beth, that I would dare to present a "gift" still with so many pauses. Thank you for being a teacher who believes in us and who challenges us to improve ourselves. 

May God bless you in this coming year of your life!
