    Want to Again

    I played flute in high school.   It was the first thing I could do reasonably well, and I enjoyed. As I grew though, without a band or orchestra to play in and work, and family taking away my time, I dropped it.  I miss it though and it's my plan to find...

    Former Flautist

    I played from 4th grade on for about 20 years.  Piccolo too, and a few other winds starting in junior high.  Interestingly, in early adulthood, I began to dislike the sound.  Perhaps it would have been different if I sounded like Rampal, but even though I ...

    From Flute to Oboe

    When I was little I was enchanted by the flute and the bird when I listened to Peter and the Wolf. It was light, fluttering, graceful and effervescent and I liked that. Birds are awesome too. Even though I play oboe now, it was the flute I noticed in Peter and the Wolf. When I...

    who does, don't I? Well, I began playing flute in middle school because I took music and the teacher gave me no choice. (I tried the clarinet but I was just a tad bit grossed out with licking the reed.) I got pretty good, I guess since I went on to being in Advanced Band and...
