Dear friends,

today is the day! I have played the cello one year and practiced every single day! #365daysofpracticechallenge: Completed! 🎶🎻❤️

I have had a totally crazy year, I never imagined anything like this!

During the year I laughed and cried, ran and fell, dreamed big and traveled towards the moon by a space rocket... 🚀 I found a whole new world!

When I stepped on to this path a year ago, I didn’t know where it would lead me. I had no idea how far I could reach! I still don't know where this all is taking me, but I'm going to find it out!

In this video I see and hear some things that are annoying me a lot, because I’m really hopeless perfectionist, but I try to think that I can learn from my mistakes and do it better next time. 😊 I also hope I will get the opportunity to play this piece with a real pianist some day, because this was quite hard with the recorded accompaniet.

Thank you all for your support!

@Ilona - 


You are so amazing! 


That is a beautiful piece - wish I had played that well at 1 year. 

Your daughter must be very proud of you - hope she is inspired to play more because of your example! 

It's been a pleasure watching your progress and hope 2021 is even better for you!

The 365 days of dedication has paid off very nicely played.

Thanks for posting.

This is very impressive! If I just saw this video and didn't know who you were from this forum, I would have guessed you'd played at least two or three years.

I find it hard to play with piano accompaniment tracks too, because they just don't respond like a real pianist.

Thank you all! ❤️

This has really been a very special year, I’m so happy I started to play the cello just in the year 2020! It probably saved my mental health this year... I have many times asked myself why I didn’t start earlier, because I have dreamed about this so long, but I really don’t know... I also had the opportunity to do this already for a couple of years ago, because I have known my teacher since my daughter started to play, but maybe I still wasn’t ready, my mind was not ready...

But now I’m really ready to go as far as I can! I’m so grateful that I have all the opportunities to move forward. I have a great teacher who will definitely support me in every way. And I have great friends all over the world!

Next goal: 1000 days in a row! 😄💪🏻
