Now that's a name that brings a smile to most of the strings kids faces in my school. Most of my bloggy buddies know that I've been playing cello since I was 8 and i'm 16 now. It doesn't feel that long though. I started in school when I was in third grade. My cello was taller than I was! My school teacher who really taught me most of what I know was Ms. Lawrence. She was my teacher from 3rd to 8th grade. I really miss her now that i'm a junior in high school. She just had one of those fun but caring personalities and she always had good instrument advice. Last night I decided to get up off my but and go to the middle school band/orchestra concert. I missed those events and it was so much different than performing. It was all holiday music compared to the boring music played in high school. Afterwards, I had to go hunt down Ms. L. She was surprised to see me and gave me a hug. It's times like these that makes me wish I could back in time. Back to when Orchestra was a class I really looked forward too. I love playing, but my current conductor takes the fun out of music. If you're reading this Ms. Lawrence, thanks for being an awesome conductor and really inspiring me to keep playing!
