10, 17, 18 :)
10. What classical song best describes your instrument?
Billy the Kid!!!!
17. What is the most damage that has been done to your instrument?
Oh man. I’m triggered. It was my first year participating in festival orchestra and I was 15 years old. I made the huge mistake of leaving my ‘cello in the bay below the bus and it basically exploded. The strings were out of tunes, pegs out of alignment. Ugh. Ugh.
18. Write a letter to your instrument.
Please don’t take this personally. Our relationship has gone as far as it will be able to go. I’m not leaving you forever, I’m not abandoning you, and I’m certainly not replacing you. You’ve been there for me during my most important times as a musician, adolescent, and as a friend. You’ll always have my heart, but this needs to be done. I’m growing up, I’m moving up. You can’t provide the things that I need. I’ll always love you. Always.
