Hi everyone...Yep, I'm frustrated with re-learning to play Willow, my soprano sax. Things went better the other day, but tonight I felt like I went backwards. Squeaking again and playing up an octave without using the octave key. It all has to do with where and how I place my mouth on the mouthpiece. I know most of you will not understand that since you do not play a woodwind instrument..but just know I am frustrated. Re-learning is not fun at the moment..but I know some day it will be..just not right now. Someday Willow and I will look at one another and smile with right notes coming out. That's just not happening at the moment. I'm going to give it a rest for a few days and stick with my alto, Allyson.
Everything else is good. I'm still reading my John Grisham book and still coloring. Arjay and Max are fine..All is well otherwise.
