Bibliography
Elgar was born on 2nd June 1857 at Broadheath, a village some three miles from the small city of Worcester in the English West Midlands.

He began violin lessons at the age of seven. He acquired performing experience with local chamber groups and orchestras and by the age of sixteen was a proficient enough player to support himself as a freelance violinist and teacher. But his true ambition was to become a composer, and he wrote assiduously for performance locally.

Edward Elgar died in February 23, 1934, in Worcester.

Why I Play The Cello
The sound the cello produces is unlike any other instrument

It can have a deep and mellow sound yet it can sound similar to a viola when the high notes are played

There are also a wide range of pieces that are played on the cello and it also blends well with other instruments

You can play a wide range of music styles from classical to rock to jazz
