Welcome to the home page of...


My name is Ruthie Valente. I'm 14 years old and I'm from Texas.

I've been playing the cello for about seven years,now. I've been taking lessons from Phyllis Kline since I was six. I am a member of our local youth orchestra.

I've competed in the NEISD Solo and Ensemble, All Region Orchestra, YOSA Summer Camp, and Baylor Summer Sring Camp. I recently sent in a tape to Interlochen, and I'm hoping to go there this summer.

Right now I'm working on the Brahms"Sonata in Eminor". My goal is to be a professional cellist and I'd love some advice.
