Autry playing her cello

Autry has decided to take up the cello, and I couldn’t be happier. I spent most of my childhood playing instruments, and I was in orchestra from fourth grade until tenth. I never played the cello, I started on viola and then moved onto bass, but I love the cello. I  remember enough about how to play that I am able to help her. I still have a bass in storage, and I am going to get it out, so we can play together.

Decca has started taking piano. He is working with a great teacher who is very patient and understanding. It can be hard because he has selective mutism, but she is able to work with him, and he loves it. He practices everyday, and he seems happy to have his own lessons.
