Today was the woodwinds exam for my Instrumental Methods class: I had to play chromatic scales on the flute, the oboe, the clarinet, the bassoon, and the saxophone all consecutively. It went really well! It's fun, learning all these instruments. I play the clarinet in our little class "band." My Mom used to play the clarinet when she was a kid. Hey Mom, if you're reading this, I hope you're proud of me, your own little clarinet-playing daughter. I can play chromatic scales, I can play the tunes from the band book we're using, and I can play the clarinet melody that the red-haired girl plays in Mr. Holland's Opus. Brava!
