The moment I realized I didn’t have to major in music in order to play, it was like a blinding light shining down.

-Eve Cohen

This is from Blair Tindall’s latest article.

There are alternatives to going into music professionally. You don’t have to quit music entirely. And that’s a good thing, don’t you think?

I’ve coached a few times for the Chamber Musicians of Northern California (members of the larger Amateur Chamber Music Players) and some of the players were very, very good. In addition, they love to play, and you don’t hear whining.

Even from the oboists. :-)

And now I must get to practicing. Without whining.

Rats.
