The autobiography of cellist Michelle Kyle

Excerpts:
...a visiting music teacher asked us all to demonstrate separating our second and third fingers while keeping our first and second, and our third and fourth, together...


...I began playing cello in the orchestra of the local high school before I was old enough to attend that school...


...In my first year at Brandon, I excelled. I won full tuition scholarships, additional string performance scholarships and academic scholarships, and I won the local music competitions...


...I had the rare musicality needed to be a soloist, but didn't know how to focus my practicing to develop my technique...


...After one year of Gisela's teaching approach..... I changed my major to piano...


...Ironically, when I was working on my own with no cello teacher, I won the Edward Johnson Music Competition as a cello soloist...


...I moved to Toronto to study law at Osgoode Hall...


...I auditioned to play cello in the Toronto subway, and won a licence to play that helped me pay my law school tuition. I played in the subway for a few years while I was in law school, and I still meet people who remember hearing me play there!..


...My string trio plays music by Ennio Morricone, Journey, U2, Aerosmith, Coldplay...
