My friend, Elizabeth, posts “Totally Me” posts on her blog to describe herself and to allow her readers to know her better. I copied her idea…and so here we go!
I LOVE learning new instruments. So far, I have/can play piano, flute, violin, bassoon, and a few random other instruments, such as hand bells and recorder.
I just hit my 10th year doing music (well, technically, it’s 13, since my parents wanted to start music young…but I was SO shy that I refused to talk to the teacher…and do anything else in front of the teacher, so they decided to quit for a little while).
For the first 3 years of my taking piano lessons, I never spoke a word to my teacher…except once, when I said “Thank you.” We still got along fine though, and I learned a lot…we communicated through music.
It’s true, I don’t watch TV at all.
Oh…you play the piece through twenty times, non-stop, no mistakes. Person walks in; you can hardly get through the FIRST line without messing up. And this, my readers, is why I fail auditions. Every. Single. Year.
And sight reading could also be why I fail auditions, too.
Oh, the joys of band
I’m SO blessed to be able to learn to play music…and I’m appreciating it to death!
Some flute quotes-
Yup…and also, “Do you know how to finger that?”
It’s a flautist. NOT flutist. That’s wrong. (Even if spellcheck thinks it’s the other way around).
Love that quote!
You’ve gotta have at least ONE about strings, right?
I don’t know about y’all, but when I think of Sound of Music, I think
of the Science Olympiad event it goes with music…so here are a few of my Sound of Music quotes!
And, well, this fits into music pretty well, too…
Last but not least-
