    Oh no not the SAXOPHONES AGAIN!

    No oh no no no not the saxophone lessons again. Picture five students trying to play hip hop on saxophones in different keys if you will. Next stop, the Twighlight Zone!
    At least she could do is teach them how to play a simple C scale. "Squeek" is not in any musical text books! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    They shoot horses don't they! I have to get me a sample of this to share with all of you SO I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH SCWED UP HEARING!

    How do you know they are playing saxaphones? They may be killing cats (or small woodland creatures)!

    I sympathise with you, but it's not as bad as oboes. The PAIN!!!!!

    That's the worst!

    Could be worse. I have 10 beginning oboe students (Music Ed Majors) every Monday and Wednesday Morning at the same time! Talk about harsh on the ears! I spend most of the class standing behind them!

    Once you know how to make pretty noises on oboes they become cool. In fact, it and bassoon are my two most favorite instruments to write for. It's just when they're first starting out that they are NOT cool!

    I agree with the oboe comment! I always said that the Horn, Oboe, and Violin can be the most beautiful of instruments when played well, but can be atrocious when learning the instrument.
