As an eager fifth grade cello student, I made it my goal to accomplish playing Flight of the Bumblebee by the time I graduated from high school. I figured this was reasonable – I would be a much better player in high school, so it would be easy (or so I thought.) When I found out it was to be played at a ghastly 170 beats per minute, I decided to focus on things that were easier for me to attain with my college auditions coming up. Now that I’m closer than ever to graduating from college, I thought it was a good idea to pick it up again – until I found out about John Taylor and Daniel Himebauch.

Now, John Taylor is a music teacher out of Westminster, Colorado. His version sounds something like this:
Needless to say, Daniel is now the record holder with a tempo of 1300 beats per minute.
