Meghan Hillson

  • What first got you into playing the instrument?

- I first started cello because I was bored and wanted to try something new. I wanted to try something completely out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I did.


  • What challenges did you face when started playing the Cello?

- When I first started I faced the challenge of my own impatience. I was frustrated that I wasn't getting better as fast as the other people. However, I never gave up even though it was really hard.


  • What is one message you would have for someone who chooses to start?

- One message I would have for someone who is choosing to start playing is that it might seem difficult at the beginning but the end result is worth it. Just stick it out and do the best that you can!


  • Do you have any other extracurricular activities?

- I don't have too many extracurricular activities. I did gymnastics for 10 years and then quit because I wanted to do something different. I also do art in my free time and help run an art club at my local library. I also babysit.
