Oh, and P.S.

That's totally what you think it is.

It's a sticker on the 1st movement of the Vivaldi, which I played from memory with the correct dynamics, articulation, and intonation.

When we finished playing it at my lesson tonight, I lowered my violin and smiled stupidly at my teacher.

"Let's put a sticker on THAT!" said Jennifer, at which point I raised my arms, holding my violin and bow in each hand like an musical olympian.

"It's only, like, 7 months in the making!" I cheered.

Apparently that's equivalent to breakneck pace on the Vivaldi A Minor Concerto. I'm apparently a middle-aged beginner violin prodigy. I have a sticker of a large-eared dog with pink fairy wings to prove it.
