My Return to Music

I knew there was a reason I returned to music. I may not be the most naturally talented cellist but I love the journey in learning and take pride in my accomplishments. I’m a late bloomer and while I have been trained at the Royal Conservatory in my very early years, I abandoned the craft, foolishly thinking that it would do me no good in my later years.

And when I see videos such as my favourites below, I know I’ve made the right decision to return to music. I think I’ve finally come home:)

Ukele Kid: I’m Yours: Ok, he can’t sing but he sure can play! And he’s really adorable!

August Rush: Guitar Slap: One of my favourite scenes from the movie!

guitar90: Canon: Everytime I see this I am speechless. I recently played at a string concert –over 60 violinists and cellists playing in our own rendition of Pachebel’s Canon! I’m always moved by this particular piece!

Adding value to video

Ok. so I’m all about music lately. This one is my favourite of all time: Pachelbel’s Canon. The video on its own is really compelling but what I did was create a story about the video itself. I wanted to provide some information about the artist behind the music, the number of viewers who were just as inspired as I was with this performance, and lengths the media took to find out who this guy was. Hypervideo can be really powerful if there is perceived value incremental to the content that already exists. I think I’ve done that in this example. Enjoy!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
