    Playing musically means expressing your heart, expressing an idea, expressing your heart. We learn technical violin skills for the same reason we learn to read & write; to better express our intentions, our thoughts. Ideally we can do this without the audience noticing how difficult or not it is to produce the idea.

    Catching up a day late! But, as others have said, musicality speaks to emotion more even than words or images can
