Cellist Wasia Ward Shares The Magic Of Art And Music

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” 
Aldous Huxley

I've been a musician for as long as can remember. There is no memory that I have that does not include me knowing that I loved playing music.

Art was just something I liked doing. There was no introduction. I just knew that I really enjoyed drawing so I did it often and my mother took notice of this and decided I should attend an art and craft class during the summer when I was 12 years old. It wasn't until high school that I really realised that I wanted to be an artist though. I had much more exposure to art and the possibilities of it so I fell in love with it.

The music fell behind then. I loved piano but I didn't practice often because it seemed to come more naturally to me and I also had to change music tutors often. I was then introduced to the cello when I turned 16 and I couldn't possibly love it more. The instrument became another part of myself and I had never been able to become so emotionally involved with music until then. 


I still didn't have the courage to pursue a career in music or art as I thought I couldn't convince my parents that it was a valid option, so I enrolled into university to become an engineer (3 of my 5 siblings are engineers).

I didn't have it in me to become another depressed adult so after a year at the university, I was able to convince my mother (who then convinced my father) that I should further my career in something that I didn't hate, something that came naturally to me and something I could build upon with success because it was natural.


Now, I'm the cellist of the Number 1 string quartet in the Caribbean and I'm graduating from university this year with a BA in Visual Arts while also being able to be a freelance artist. It has been such a rewarding journey thus far and I'm so excited to see what I continue getting myself into.

I am also liking music as I used to have to practise at my parents command but to no avail. I never became a gifted musician but I love music.
