Yep, that’s right. I’ve teamed up with the lovely people at Strings Magazine, and I’m having a little bit of a contest.

In 250 words or less, what would you say is the essence of my take on learning and playing the cello?

The reason I ask is multi-purpose. I want to know how well I am conveying my point, or if I am giving off inaccurate representations of my approach. I also want to challenge my readers to sift a little bit and see if that process yields anything that might be helpful to their experience with the cello. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day and lose the over-arching ideas that should apply to those days.

The winner gets a one-year subscription to Strings Magazine and a goody bag of stuff from Benning Violins. If you are already a subscriber, then you get renewed, or you can gift the new subscription to a friend. Entries due March 31st! Send them to contact(at)emilywright(dot)net.
