Almost music

I've been keeping this a secret for a while, but I recently decided to learn how to play the cello. And how cool is this: the good people at the Berliner Philharmoniker are now providing free online lessons!

Below are the results of my first week of practice (apologies for the un-centered quality of the first half of this video):

What can I say? Those German music teachers are pretty strict. In case you couldn't read it, here's the text of my evaluation:

Almost music. You are holding the Cello with the right side up. And you don't try to blow into it. The rest will be a breeze. Follow your musical instincts. And try again.

Does that mean Camille Saint-Saƫns won?
