I know in particular when i was first learning to play my friends would give me grief but we all have to start somewhere, i think over the years i have progressed nicely. I haven't done exams for a long while, but simply just enjoy playing with my Friend the Music Teacher & by my self.
On a few occasions we have played to an audience, We joined the Churchlands community Orchestra for awhile it was enjoyable to play with such a large group of musicians rather than solo or duet.

We also had a little trio going for a while 3 cellos just for fun, and we have played a few various occasions ie birthday parties, a High Tea, hen's party & soon my mother's 60th.
All for free were not professionals, but its good experience and the people see to enjoy it :-)
I've come along away from hot cross buns.
