This is a book written by John Holt, famous for his writings about how children learn.

He decided to start learning how to play the cello, and thereby show that we all have greater learning abilities than we think.

Very interesting for music teachers and cellists, in particular.

John Holt, best know for his insight into the way children learn, also explored adult learning. At the age of 40 he took up the cello. His touching and hilarious account of his passionate second career demolished the myth that one must start in early childhood to learn how to play a musical instrument (or sport, or a language). This book will inspire any reader who dreams of taking up a new skill as an adult.
