Found this book of musical exercises for flute while I was searching through bins at a Goodwill store this morning.  I hadn’t picked up my flute in years, but I still cherish the years I spent playing it in both marching and concert bands.  I loved everything about being a musician except auditioning.  Playing wasn’t a problem but having someone listen to me perform one-on-one?  Instant nausea.  The flute was the only instrument I ever developed even the most rudimentary skill at playing, though I played around with my friends’ saxophone and trumpet.  If I could learn a new instrument at this stage of my life, though, it would have to be piano.
