Made my final payment and brought home my cello. I can’t really afford lessons right now so I’ve downloaded some beginner instructions off the internet. Time to get started! 9 months ago

I’ve always thought the cello was a beautiful sounding instrument. I’ve had music as a part of my life as long as I can remember, but I never mastered any instrument. I went to see Lord of the Rings in concert and immediately, that became my goal. I want to play the cello along with the original score to Lord of the Rings. I bought a cello, but I haven’t made the time to practice. 13 months ago
I think this is probably the most fulfilling goal I’ve ever achieved. The cello is just a brilliant instrument. It was quite difficult to learn at first but because I was extremely eager to learn it so it became a pleasant challenge. I’ve only began but I feel as if the cello is my soul instrument. I’ve been searching for my instrument for a long time and I’ve finally found it. When you discover an instrument that fits your personality and your capabilities, it’s just magic being able to play your heart out on your special instrument :) 13 months ago
I finally found an affordable cello. There were 2 at a local pawn shop so I put one in layaway! 16 months ago
This is the first day since I got my cello that I haven’t practiced. There hasn’t been a time since I got back from work when someone hasn’t been using the kitchen-living-dining room. I’ll be moving in a couple of weeks though, and then I’ll have enough space to keep it in my room and practice there. 20 months ago
I had my first lesson with my new teacher yesterday. It turns out I’ve been holding both the cello and the bow wrongly, so I’m glad I had someone to tell me before it became a habit. I’ll do plenty of work on my tone and bowing this week, so that next lesson we can move on to some fingerings. I’m impatient to progress, I don’t like being a beginner! 20 months ago
Finally, some progress on this goal! I just got my very own cello today, it is beautiful and I love it. Now I am looking for a teacher. :) 20 months ago
my school has a huge selection of different musical instruments for loan. every study hall, i’ve been going down the strings department and fiddling around with the cello.
what a beautiful instrument!
i’m lucky in that i learned to play the piano at an extremely young age, and consequently am very adept at music theory and instruments and have a deep intuitive understanding of all things musical. 23 months ago
