In the beginning, there was a fella who missed his chance at cella (sic). He looked at his new cello and it was good. He played his first stopped note, and it sounded, well, as expected.
I was inspired by Emily Wright’s contest. It made me think. What is ths supposed to be?
My blog was primarily made to answer the questions
- What issues beginners face from the point of view of beginners.
I tried this approach at my other blog . It’s a good way to start a blog, but it’s hard to continue. And it raises the question, “when can you stop calling yourself a beginner”. Thus, this cannot be the raison d’être of the blog, although it’s certainly a start.
- Along the line of a beginner’s point of view, I’m curious about how much a person can progress in a year if they practice every day for a year, for an average of an hour a day? As we noted earlier, in the first few weeks, only practice 30 minutes a day, and increase gradually. Never over do it. Of course, this means over-do it and then learn a lesson not to do that again. This recalls a time when my fingers went numb for two days after an over-long practice session.
I guess, like anything else, this journey is a work in progress, so I won’t be too quick to declare an organizational scheme until one more readily suggests itself.
