It reminded me of music one would hear at Christmas time. There was a new violinist who really…

    When I was a child, I was addicted to orchestral music, and I loved the sound from the flute. I think the flute performs the most wonderful music in the world. Afterward, I started to learn how to play the flute. Producing a sound from the flute can be a little tricky, so you should practice the correct blowing method first before you attempt to play any specific notes, and that’s also why I need more time to practice performing the flute. I spent two hours on practicing the flute a day, and…

It 's hard to articulate the crushing feeling of rejection that comes with a botched audition, when the numbers don 't add up as high as they should and the boxes are filled with helpful comments that only show how big a screw-up it was. I would know, because I 've tried - and failed - to get into Allstate three years in a row. Even though I am also a vocalist, I 've always auditioned as on my flute. With good reason, the hardest instrument to get in for is violin, but the flute comes…

    “Stick to flute” is something I’ve heard from a few people while I was trying new things. Mr. Briem, one of the band teachers, took this the opposite direction and started me on a path to unknowingly end up like him.
