    Love the process, embrace curiosity and live to inspire. A pretty recent motto I'm trying to appreciate. Still feeling grateful for all the opportunities I've received so far. 
So here's a little improv :) #cello #fingerstyle #fingerstyleguitar #cellist

    I loved covering @arilennox Shea Butter Baby, what a mood.. Put my own spin on the production courtesy of my Loop station and the only relevant POTUS 🙆🏾‍♀️🎻 the past few months have featured a lot of exploration in music, and with that self-doubt and insecurity surrounding my expression. I’m learning a little everyday to trust my creativity, cause it’s pure and it’s mine. Trust your creativity🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #violinist #arilennox #jcole #dreamville #blackgirlmagic #loop #strings

    Conquering re-stringing my first broken string was clearly a reflection of myself and a huge metaphorical hurdle. I almost cried, cussing out my miniature jaguar demons 😼 for knocking her over, then blamed myself for not putting her in the case... when I came down to the moment, almost gave up thinking my fingers were surely bleeding ... but I overcame. It's not pretty, in fact, maybe cringeworthy but... I did it and yes she's in tune 🎶 I hope this is the only thing that "breaks" during Mercury Retrograde (I'm a Leo sun) Of course, I happily embrace this learning lesson!

    I am so excited to present to you guys another installment of Awesome People And Their Stickers!! I love all of these pictures - thank you so much everyone! A few special mentions: That adorable puppy in photo 1 is Micaela’s dog Joey. 🐶 (And you can kind of see Megan’s black and white Pom, Katana, under her hand in photo 2 😂) That’s the Rosebourne Duo in photo 3, two amazing ladies who are showing off their stickers from all the way in the UK!! I love having international friends! 😊 The cuddly kitty cat 🐱 in photo 5 is Ashley’s fur baby Angel (one of two - her other cat Snowflake wouldn’t sit still for a photo!). And photos 7 & 8 are great because Keith put his sticker right on his bass before Pop Strings and proceeded to play the show with it on there! So happy to have all you amazing people in my life! ♥️♥️♥️

    The women in the #oklahomabroadway band! Eleonore Oppenheim on bass, Hilary Hawke on banjo, Sarah Goldfeather on violin and yours truly on cello. It's fantastic to play with them every night!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love that we outnumber the guys in the band. (They're amazing too, of course! Joe Brent on mandolin and Brett  Parnell on guitar and slide guitar!) I think Mr. @NKoci knew what he was doing... #broadway #oklahomabroadway #broadwaymusicals #musicals @oklahomabroadway

    🎻Some of the biggest names in violin playing history before Jascha Heifetz took the world by storm!
____________________

The day after the 19-year-old Heifetz’s London debut, George Bernard Shaw wrote him a now legendary letter: If you provoke a jealous God by playing with such superhuman perfection, you will die young. I earnestly advise you to play something badly every night before going to bed, instead of saying your prayers. No mortal should presume to play so faultlessly.

Heifetz believed that any obstacle on the violin could be overcome. If his students' strings went out of tune while they were playing, he would not allow them to stop and re-tune the violin. One time, when a student complained that it was impossible to continue under such conditions, Heifetz picked up his violin, put it radically out of tune, and proceeded to play Paganini's 16th Caprice flawlessly. When he had to substitute a finger for a note that would ordinarily have been an open string, he did it automatically and perfectly. The entire class was dumbfounded. Daniel Mason, who witnessed that feat, came away convinced that there was absolutely no physical barrier between what Heifetz heard in his head and what he was able to produce on the violin.

Heifetz responded to a question about his stage presence by saying: Actually, I don't feel I'm impenetrable, cool or aloof when I'm on stage. If I don't smile...it's only because I become so absorbed in my playing that I forget everything else. If a smile doesn't come spontaneously, why resort to an artificial grimace?
