Clarinetist in C major or A minor
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
After playing clarinet in the high school band, I picked up the clarinet again at age 40 have been playing it for the last decade. My music teacher tells me that I am good enough to play in a community band, but I don’t know whether that is a compliment or an insult. I can play a mean clarinet in any style, as long as I know what key we are in… or better still, only in the keys of C major or A minor… I’m not quite good enough to play in Brad Ingrao’s group…. yet.
