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. 4 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! 4 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. :) 4 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. 6 months ago
This goal is going nowhere, and I want my list of Things to be up-to-date. I know there are quite a few goals that I don’t work towards on a daily, or even weekly, basis, but at least I still think about them and take mental notes on ways to eventually get to that point. I have no idea when I would want to put it back on my list, but I know one thing: the goal shouldn’t be on it now. 10 months ago
I’ve spent some time today looking through rental costs and lesson costs from various teachers around my city. One thing’s for sure – in the long run, this is NOT going to be cheap. Why couldn’t I have fallen in love with the violin instead?
Or the recorder?
