Hard Work is Paramount for 10 Year old, Ellie, an Outstanding Cellist and Ballet Dancer
Hard Work and Practice Paramount for 10 Year old, Ellie, an Outstanding Cellist and Ballet Dancer
Kids who aspire to grow up to be a well-known musician or performer do so with hard work and perseverance. Ellie combines the arts with two special skills: dancing and playing a bold musical instrument called the cello. The cello is the tenor and bass instrument of the violin family.
People have compared the sound of the cello to the human voice for centuries, which is probably why it sounds so appealing. The reason behind this is because the range of the cello is quite similar to a person’s vocal range. Its wide range means it can really sing.
HARD WORK AND LOVE ARE KEYS TO THE SUCCESS OF ELLIE: A DYNAMIC CELLIST AND BALLET DANCER
Ellie is often reminded of her talent. People are constantly giving her compliments. She feels it’s important to stay humble and remember that hard work is essential.
Just like great sports players get better with practice, it is no exception with Ellie, that practice makes perfect. Behind the scenes, you will find a lot of her time going into practicing cello and ballet every day.
Having a really supportive Mom is wonderful. Her mom gives her the training she needs to succeed.
IF HER PERSONA WAS A MOVIE
If someone created a movie starring Ellie, it would be called Determination and Love. She has huge determination to achieve her goals because she loves what she does.
Ellie’s musical hero is Jacqueline du Pre. She truly admires her courage and loves watching her brilliant performances. Ellie also loves Yo-Yo Ma, a cellist with a kind and generous heart.
OTHER ADVENTURES IN THE WORKS
Ellie would love to learn more athletic activities beyond being an outstanding cellist and ballet dancer. At the moment, she plays tennis and will ski in the winter. Sometimes Ellie enjoys surfing at the beach, as well as parkour and rock climbing.
WHEN SHE GROWS UP
