I’ve always wanted to learn to play the harp or the cello. The cello is my number one favorite musical instrument. I love listening musicians such as Yo Yo Ma or Tina Guo. I was thrilled when my daughter took up the cello but after a year she switched to the violin because it was much easier to carry and she got tired of lugging the cello around. I attempted to learn to play the violin in the fourth grade, but I didn’t do very well and didn’t get very far. Both of my children played it much better than I did. I know my grandfather, who also played the violin, would have been thrilled.
I would also love to learn to play the piano. I attempted that too, even buying an electric piano keyboard and a computer program to teach how to play. I think I would do better with it now than I did then.
