Ostinato: a continually repeated musical phrase or rhythm

In order to be chosen to play Ravel’s drum in a symphony orchestra 
You have to have trained for a very long time

I remember I went to the Chicago symphony orchestra once and she was so diligent it was captivating

She must’ve started learning to play the drums at such a young age. So many hours of work

Celia does a clean long program. Celia pants, extra exhausted by the altitude and returns to Viktor Kudriatsev, the coach from Moscow that Celia is training with. 

"молодец!"

says Viktor Kudriatsev.

Celia does not know what the phrase means but has heard it many times with Celia's other coaches Sergei and Lera and knows its to be a good thing. 

 

Celia sighs with relief––

"еще раз!"

says Viktor, and Celia knows this means

'again.'

I have a   habit

Of tapping my fingers against my thumb

My sister Georgia and I were studying in lockdown when she told me about how she had considered naming her beagle Maizy after one of Ivan Pavlov's dogs.  

I googled to find out what their names were. 

From Quora.com: What was Pavlov's dog named "What was  Pavlov's Dog named?"

 

William Halmeck, M.A. Biology, Western Connecticut State University (2009) provided an in-depth response citing the research of Tim Tully as a reference for anyone interested in further study. Alongside his description, he included the list from Tully's study.

Bolero slowly builds into a crescendo

In my mind I usually think of it as just the drummer

Buhduhduhdump

As in, the steady rhythm- the ostinato

But I always forget that there’s a sudden CRASH at the end

Ravel couldn’t ask the drummer to play forever

 

In therapy one day I said

‘maybe what this all means is I will burnout sometime’

Be warned me of that too

The drummer boy has to as well

 

I am not the drummer boy.

Moladietz is.
