Ancient History


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.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
