We ran downstairs and met E 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.
