i'm Netty, i'm just starting to learn the clarinet again after approx 16years absence and i am scared and excited and confused and soooo excited did i say excited cos i'm soo excited.
i last played when i was in school, but was forced to give up at the time of choosing which gcse to take. long story short...i was torn between art and music and my mother decided art..with materials supplied was cheeper than buying a clarinet so my mother decided i was to take art. reluctant to give up i borrowed a clarinet and had private lessons after hours but when the tutor stopped showing up and then i was asked for the clarinet back so i had to give up.
due to various reasons its took 16 or so years to be in a possition to be able to take it up again, but its never been out of my head and i couldn't be more excited about finally makeing the step. i am desperatedly searching for a tutor but am haveing not much joy. i really want to study to get a grade 8(and go on to further education) but i have no i dea how to go about this. i have called all my local colleges and not one of them has any adult education music courses and with lots of searching the good old internet lead me here..the perfect forum i was looking for and i am hopeing that i will be able find some answers to the million and one questions i have buzzing around my head.
anyway's i think i have rabbited enough now, just wanted to say hi
