Ben and the Clarinet

No one should have to play an instrument that requires being drained of spit.

I recently wrote on my blog about playing the clarinet as a kid. It was sort of against my will. I wanted to play the DRUMS, but my mother thought girls didn't play drums. Ugh.

Ben chose the clarinet, after trying the trombone. Jeanine is a percussionist- drums were completely allowed.

they have to take something, though. That's the problem with having one of your parents an accomplished musician. The only force is to take an instrument. even voice is okay. but it has to be something.

That's why I like being a string player. I don't have to make any of the parts of my instrument, it's portable, and I never have to dump spit out of it.

Um, there's a viola joke in there somewhere.
