Yesterday I picked up a bassoon for rent. Today I need to find, in all the unopened boxes, my old sheet music and bassoon books as well as two old reeds. I also have a metal folding music stand somewhere.
I played bassoon in jr high and high school as well as my first year of university. As a youth, I played in Santa Barbara Youth Symphony, a college band, my high school bands… I had a teacher, and I don’t think I’ll have one this time around. I think I’ll be on my own. Not sure how that will work out.
The world feels full of possibilities, but I’m also afraid. The rental costs a pretty penny. But I think it’s important to try things.
