Khloe is well past Twinkle now, but we had to make videos of her playing the Twinkle variations for VSSA’s Book Promotion concert, so we worked on playing an easy piece at a Book 2 level. I’m LOVING her tone and the dynamic changes in the middle of the piece!

I had the privilege of hearing one of my students perform Allegro at her school's talent show this week. She worked for months on polishing that bow stroke at the beginning of the piece, and playing it with a strong sound. Not to mention, it took a lot of courage to perform all by herself in front of such a big audience... Way to go, Ripley!
Moral of the story: Always carry extra strings in your pocket! 😧
Here's an extended clip of the moment of crisis: (including throwing out new E-string)
A lot of people asked me my thought process in the moment... Well, to be honest we've all seen it happen somewhere... and now you all know what to do too if this happens to you! 😼
