Should I?

Hello, my awesome readers!

I'm super-happy. I finally got my flute back from the shop after MONTHS of waiting! Well, okay, it's been a month and a half. I gave it to my band teacher to be fixed after the Christmas concert, which was December 17th. I'm so happy to be able to practice my flute again! I'd almost forgotten how.

What with the new semester, the schedule has been changed around. Band is now every day, and it's only seventh and eighth grade instead of "Advanced" and "Beginning." (This is not a good arrangement, school board!!! But there's nothing I or anyone else can do about it.)

So since I'm going to be at the school every day now, I was thinking of picking up a second instrument. I'm not 100% sure what instrument, but right now I think the only available instruments are baritone, tuba, and trombone.

But I've always wanted to try trombone-- it looks like such a cool instrument, and they say it's really hard to learn. But I like challenging things. That's why I play the flute!

I've been considering this for a while. A second instrument will mean twice as much practice time. It will probably be hard, switching from woodwind to brass. I will probably be called a copycat, or something similar, because two of my friends recently started trombone. (But that's not the reason I want to pick up a second instrument; really, I've been considering this for about a year now.)

So should I? Tell me what you think!

  1. You could become the Obsidian Oboist. I say that because I used to be play the oboe back in the day, so I'm partial to it. :-P But whatever your choice, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

  2. I say, Yes! I think challenging things are good for everybody. Just don't get to busy to blog...
