Moon came home yesterday and informed us that it was Music Night at her school, which meant we had a chance to meet the band and orchestra teachers, watch Moon try some of the instruments and sign her up for classes. By signing up, she’ll get an hour of free instruction EVERY DAY.
We watched her try the oboe, flute, viola, cello and stand-up bass. The stand-up bass was my idea because who doesn’t love the Darlin’s from Andy Griffith? I had visions of her playing bluegrass while I accompanied her on an old jug, but alas, she went a different direction. After much deliberation, Moon has decided to play the cello.
Once Moon made her decision, I started finding YouTube video’s for her to watch. This is one of my faves. It doesn’t start until the .26 mark, so skip ahead.
Now that’s the kind of music I’d like to hear around the house! Hey, a girl can dream.
So now we’re the proud owners of a cello. Well, we will be once we fulfill the rent-to-own contract we signed today. I can only hope we finish paying for it before she decides to quit.
I said a girl can dream!

Why did you not try to get her to learn the piano since there is already one at your house? I remember buying a piano for you and sister but I don’t remember too much playing.
Awesome! Do a google search on my friend, Eric Cheng. He’s a professional photographer AND cello player!!! http://www.echeng.com/music/photos/
Maybe, one day Moon will do THIS with us: http://echeng.com/journal/2009/06/02/bahamas-sharks-and-dolphins-may-2009/
