A Little Night Music

This evening, Scooter was practicing his new piano pieces. One piece by Telemann sounded very much like pieces I used to play way back when...

So I hauled out my oboe for the first time in about 5 years and played the melody line along with him. Skip and Scooter marvelled at how red my face turns when I play. It's not like I'm going to pass out or anything, it's just that there is a tremendous amount of back pressure when one plays the oboe as the reed opening is really small. Skip ran and got the camera.

It is a real thrill for me to be able to play along with Scooter as an equal partner. I am very proud of his musical accomplishments.
