After seven years of playing the violin, I can proudly say that music has become a part of me. Throughout my experience with playing the violin, there has been one individual who has helped shape the person I am. Providing the enduring teachings that will shape me into a greater human being, this person deserves the utmost respect for establishing my interest in the violin and in music. For the sake of this story, he will be referred to as Maestro Johnson. If I had a ticket that could take me anywhere, I would use it to go back in time to the time when Maestro Johnson was my musical advisor.

Meriwether Lewis once said, “I could esteem this moment of my departure as among the most happy of my life” (“Meriwether Lewis Quotes”).

The class was filled with all string instruments, including mine, the cello, and as well as Izzy’s, the violin. There were discordant noises, coming from some of the instruments, as well as some clattering of bows. Mr.Smith raised his voice in order for everyone to hear.
“SUBJECTIVE” METHODS OF ADJUSTMENT. The soundpost and the effect of its position has fascinated violinists ever since the violin existed. The soundpost was in place before the bassbar which evolved from a thickening of the top to the separate entity we are now familiar with. A reference to the early interest in the soundpost appears in Sol Babitz  where he says that when the bridge was moved below the soundholes, the sound was worse if the soundpost was moved away from the centre of the violin to a new position below the bridge similar to that it would have had before the bridge was moved.
I sat on my bunk bed, defeated. Six years of my head in the clouds, and finally I surrendered to practicality: I just wasn’t soloist material. So what if I had wanted nothing else for as long as I could remember; who cares if I had given up everything to pursue a crazy dream? People make new decisions all the time, right? I’m a curious person - I’m just reevaluating the world, I told myself.
“RAHAB THE CANAANITE” AN ANCESTRESS OF JESUS CHRIST When the children of Israel were about to invade the land of Canaan, Joshua sent two men secretly to spy or view the land of Jericho. When they got to the city, they lodged in the house of a Canaanite woman whose name was Rahab (Joshua 2:1). The people of the city that saw those men told the king of Jericho about the strangers who came into the city and lodged in the home of Rahab. When the king of Jericho heard about the Israelites spies, he sent a message to Rahab demanding that she bring out the men that was in her house. Rahab acted in faith instead of fear and hid the two Hebrew spies under the bundles of flax plants on the roof of her house, as well concealed the reason while the men came to Jericho.
