Some things have changed, though, since we left off last. I left Orchestra at the beginning of my fifth season so I could invest all my time and energy in learning. It was the right decision for me and it had a big pay off. I was able to move ahead faster.
One day, I knew it was time to think about upgrading my cello to one that would do what I asked it to as my learning progressed. After much searching, I found my current cello. It really is my dream cello and has the sound that I had only dreamed about. I named my cello Zadlo :-) Zadlo always does what I ask...as long as I ask in the right way :-)
A few years ago, a Cello Chatter posted about Soundcloud....myself and another Cello Chatter decided to try it for fun. It has been about 2 yrs...maybe a bit more....and I have met many wonderful supportive people playing many different instruments and in different genres. In the music section of this site you will find my music and with a click you will be taken to that music on Cloud. I would love you to listen :-) The very best part of Sound Cloud are the wonderful supportive people I have met. I have listened to and am learning about different genres and instruments that I never listened to before. It's interesting and fun. I am encouraged to explore music outside the usual classical style that most cellists play. It's a new adventure for me and it's a lot of fun. Having found my heart's voice, I think I want it to sing a lot of different types of music .....all of it full of beautiful sounds.
It has been an arduous journey, for sure, and that arduous part is by no means over, but, worth it?....ABSOLUTELY !!
I appreciate you following my Cello Journey....talking about it has been a very good thing for me....thank you for listening :-)
