I would give anything to be able to play in an orchestra again. I took music lessons in school from 4th through 10th grade, when I quit because it was "college, then career" time. There was one boy who particularly excelled. Concertmaster in every venue throughout school. In vain, through the years, I have looked for his name associated with some renowned musical group. When I finally located him, hmmmph, he became a doctor. Wonder if he found time for music while in premed, or just when did he quit? He could have played professionally. Most likely would never have learned about his talent had there not been music in my city and county's schools. We had PE and driver's ED too. Our parent's school tax dollars went further it seems.
