Every Student Can!

Chuck is a Professor Emeritus of Physics, NKU String Project Adult Orchestra cello principal, and a proud 76-year-old grandpa. The photo shows him learning how to play a chord with a techniquely sound hand shape. Chuck shared that he practices cello every day from scales, etudes, solo works, and orchestra music. A music lover, he never missed a lesson. Even with an injured ankle in a cast, he still came to our cello lessons. His drive for learning and playing music showed the pandemic was no obstacle for him at all!

Chuck’s passion motivates me. I think that playing the cello enlightens life, which proves most important during these socially distanced times.
