    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 ...

    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...

    Still An Amateur

    I started in the sixth grade and played all the way through high school. I don't play as much anymore and, despite having a flute in my possession for over ten years, I still consider myself an amateur.
