Viola Update

My teacher gave me a passing grade on the study shown here. I played it so many times that I found I had the work playing in my mind over and over too. I can't say I'm able to play it perfectly even now, but I did come close a few times.

I think I'm over the 'wall' that deters many beginners from continuing to play a musical instrument. There is still plenty of frustration, but I now look forward to practicing and practicing longer (when I have the time) and I know am making progress despite inevitable plateaus.
