My orchestra teacher does that too. All she ever does is rant out the violins. She says were not paying attention, or whatever, and I'm one of the only people in the class who practices. And the Cello part is so easy I can play it in my sleep. Especially to heart and soul. And she says we're aweful, when one of the cellists always shouches like he's sleeping, and one of the other cellists doesn't even bother playing. And then the boy cellists make fun of us because Violins can be kin of squeaky. All because my teacher is a cellist. I feel for you.
