Wie ben ik?

Hello! I am Maria, I am 20 years old, and I come from Portugal. Recently I was given the opportunity to play an instrument from NMF and I could not be happier about it. 
Before I found to this instrument, I had played with the same cello for 5 years, and I could not really move on with that. It had a insturment that did not have a fantastic projection, the measures were not equal, so it was a bit uncomfortable to play. 
"My new cello" is an instrument with great projection and warm sound. It speaks very quickly and it is very easy to play. This instrument will extend my horizons about cello playing and I hope it helps me to become a better musician.
