I Like Music
Presently, I am learning to play the cello.
I started piano lessons when I was 5 years old. After a year of kicking our piano demanding lessons, the teacher and my mother finally gave in and let me start. I was in my first recital after a few weeks of lessons. I walked out onto the stage. Played my song. Heard a lot of noise. Looked over to see the auditorium seats filled with people. They hadn't been there that afternoon during practice. That wasn't part of the deal as far as I was concerned. It's hard to get traction in dress patent leather Mary Janes.
At Present, I have also learned the flute and the guitar. I had to learn the guitar to protest the Viet Nam war while in college. It's hard to be taken seriously while playing war protest songs on a flute.
