Learning to Play the Cello


(Photos by Lullette M.)

 As many of you know, I am , in my heart and soul, a piano player.  It's been as natural to me as breathing, eating bacon, flexing my calf muscles, and being hopelessly left-handed.  I feel most at home when I sit at a piano.  As Tom Cruise might say, it completes me. 

One thing about myself that I've come to understand is that I am often not content with the status quo.  I've always been one to learn something new and take on different challenges.  Maybe it's just my nature or perhaps I am a glutton for punishment.  Either way, this is who I am, and thus, so be it. 

For several years now, I've been thinking a lot about cellos.  I love the rich tones and textures they create.  It is an instrument capable of creating such amazing beauty.  Last October, I took on a very exciting and new challenge.   I rented a cello and started taking weekly lessons. 

Why do I write, and why do I love Music?

On The Anon Girl

I want to be a poet when I'm older, or a journalist. Anything that involves writing. A lot of people ask why I write, and why I am so into music? I write, because writing is one of my favorite things to do, in some ways I feel like I was just born with it. I've been writing since I was little, except back than, what i wrote didn't make a lot of sense. My mom used to write too, she wanted to be a journalist when she grew up. She wrote love letters to people but never gave the letters to them, I guess that's where I got it from. My mom told me that I remind her just like her when she was a teenager. I love to write, because I'm not good at expressing my words. I'm probably the most awkward person ever...I'm like an awkward hippo. Writing, is so much easier for me to express myself. I don't have to make eye contact with anyone when I'm writing out my feelings. When I write my poems, most of them express things I feel, but since it's a poem, no one really knows they are about me. Some are other peoples scenarios..like suicide, bullying, things like that. As for music, none of you reading this know that I play guitar, piano and I sing, I also listen to music every second of every day..well maybe that is exaggerating a little, but just a little. I listen to old music, rock music, country music, basically all kinds of music. I started playing guitar 2 years ago, and started playing piano three years ago, as for singing, I've been singing my whole life. Music is like my escape from the world. Music describes exactly what I'm feeling most of the time. Singing, is just a passion of mine. Guitar, I love the sound of it. Piano, I feel free when I am playing it. I also love the sound of it as well. Since I sit in my room all day, write, and listen to music, you could say I'm a awkward loser with no social life.....but that'd be an understatement.
