galactickim is a hundred miles behind herself
Last week I rented a cello and have played around on it a bit. Screech, screech, twang, twang. I bought a couple of beginner books – some that were not really easy because I can already read music and have played the violin in my past.
Today I will get one step closer to my goal: I have my first cello lesson this evening. Before I practice any more I want to ensure I’m starting out alright with correct posture, finger positioning, bow tension, rosin… so many considerations that I really am unsure about.
My question, though, is how do I know when I have completed this goal? What is the end result? I think I will take monthly videos and post to Facebook and have my friends vote on whether or not I can play the cello. A subsequent goal will be to play in some sort of trio/quartet/ensemble for an audience! But first things first:let’s just learn to play.
