I’ve started with some guided practice (i.e. with a backing track and sheet music). I feel that my tone improved over this week and by working with that backing track. That’s pretty cool. However, there are still some slight mistakes. I’ll try to improve upon it by adding a small, very easy piece to the next week. It’s a violin duet so I can easily play the second violin. I’ll see if I can get the permission to record that piece. That would be great!
