The joke's on me. I could not have guessed what would happen when I emailed the Vivaldi A minor Concerto to the father of my 10 year old student, who has been playing for about a year and a half (not a Suzuki kid). The boy told his father that there must be some mistake. The music I sent could not be violin music because some of the notes were too high to play on the violin. I showed him the third position. He had some difficulty when he attempted it, and I almost relented, but his father insisted that a challenge would be good for him. Besides, the father liked the sound of the Vivaldi, and so did the son. Maybe I had a good idea in spite of myself.
