We ran downstairs and met Elvie and hopped in her car and off we went. About twenty minutes later we stopped at the music store and we jumped out and went inside. Oh course I got the urge to go to the woodwind section, my favourite because I used to play sax and clarinet. This guy came over and wanted to know if he could help me and I said maybe. I asked about both sax and clarinet and well... err... sigh...
I couldn't seem to help myself. I got the student clarinet because I don't know yet whether I'll keep it going. At the moment I am just renting it for a few months and then I'll decide what to do. I did play all afternoon much to the amusement of Dov.
It has been a long time but it was fun. I put it together in no time flat and then the first few tries were no noise, then duck noises and then I blew my first note. Within half an hour I had a scale and then part of a song. I had trouble trying to hold it so today I am going back to get a neck strap as I am a bit sore today.
This morning I am going to sketch and cartoon. It should be fun. The I have my outreach person and the the music shop and then it's music time where Dov will ask me for a note and I will probably play a note too low. I did find a clarinet fingering chart online but it doesn't seem to help yet. Like I said it's been a while. It will be busy day I think.
