Unsung Hero

So, as many of you know, I play the cello. I have been playing for about 7 years. It's a lot of work, and sometimes annoying, but it's worth the satisfaction of successfully playing through a song, or completing a competition or performance. Last night was my schools orchestra and band awards banquet. Everyone received some sort of award. These were our first, second, third, and fourth year awards. There were also a number of students who received special achievements. Surprisingly, I received one of those awards. My school has two orchestras and I happen to be in the lower one. I auditioned last year to be in the upper orchestra but I wasn't good enough. My teacher talked about discouragement and how it's never easy to be told you aren't good enough. HE went on to say how a young lady had auditioned last year and just wasn't good enough, but she didn't let it get to her, she tried harder and improved greatly. That student was me :) I've worked really hard, and it makes me proud to know that my hard work has payed off. :)


  1. You are a wonderful cello player. I love hearing you play. You should post a video of you playing.
