It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Sorry for wrong impression

Cleveland Clinic? Yeah, I think I might let you work on me. ;-)

As a kid I was pretty good and a little cocky until I got to Interlochen and discovered the chasm between pretty good and bound for Julliard!

So...seldom as a pro...a few pit orchestra performances for peanuts at Cain Park in Cleveland Heights, waaay before it became a Gang hangout. Once in awhile when a big band was wanted for a wedding.

Came within an eyelash of the house band for the Big Five Show, Cleveland's answer to Dick Clark back in '67 (?) but the week before we were set for the opener with Janis Joplin the station decided not to pay up for a 12 piece. Bastards!

Played in the Suburban Symphony from age 14 then off and on as college and career allowed. KSU band during a draft dodging stint there and my one claim to fame, winning an audition for the Oxford Musical Society orchestra my year of study abroad.

Never without a horn though to amuse myself and annoy the neighbors.

I like to think that those of us who play instruments without keys, valves or pistons have a leg up on others in terms of hearing and anticipating pitch, tone, and dynamics. Useful for auditioning stereo equipment.
