Some days are good. Some days are bad.

Today?

Well, not entirely good anyway.

1) At the UCSC meeting for freshman the chair of our department asked for oboists to raise their hands. Heh … even one hand would have been nice. :-(

2) I had a rehearsal with some other UCSC faculty after the meeting. Warning: it’s a very bad idea to put your reed in the reed water, set it on the stand, and THEN move the stand, thus dropping the container, reed and water on the floor, cracking the best oboe reed you’ve had recently that you were planning on using for opera.

3) During the “meet the students” scheduled hours I met no students.

But still … The Giants won. I’m attempting to focus on that. :-)

PS Any UCSC oboists … it’s not too late to sign up for lessons! Contact me here and I’ll get right back to you. I plan on being on campus on Tuesdays.

  1. Darn!  If only I was 18 again and over there . . . you’d have a very enthusiastic student!  :-D
