When I was in the 5th grade, my grandpa gave me a very difficult decision to make. He offered to pay for either piano lessons or for me to play the flute in the band. After much thinking, I chose the flute (although I would still love to be able to play piano)!
The very first time I tried to play the flute, I could get no sound out! For some reason I chose it without ever getting a sound out. Of course, I did eventually get the flute to play and now, 23 years later, I am still playing.
I no longer play regularly – usually only for offertories at church along with whatever practice makes that possible! But regardless of how often I play my flute, I think I will always enjoy it!
