When i was in 6th grade i joined band class and i chose had the choice of trumpet, clarinet, trombone(hehe tromboner <-13 year old me), or flute. I was very confused which one i should choose and the teacher told us if we wanted to play another instrument we would have to wait till half way through the year playing the starter music instruments so i chose the clarinet and the first time i played it well the paint peeled off my house and my parents made me play outside on the porch but after a week of constant practice i managed to play jingle bells perfectly and aced the first test and got first chair in the clarines section which had about 15 people in my class and i felt pretty damn proud of myself so after getting a perfect score on every test the teacher gave us i was given an early chance to move to a new instrument and i chose *bum bum BUMMM* tenor saxophone and i absolutely loved it i love the sound i loved the feeling of the pearl keys felt on my hands and it just felt right so of course i started practicing immediately and sounded pretty good for a newbie within a week and i again got straight a’s all year long and when others were able to pick other instruments and there were 4 other tenor saxophonists yet i still got first chair as i learned more and more i started writing my own music and gave them to the teacher and a few of the more elaborate ones the teacher had the class play and helped me make different parts for each instruments so i got the whole class to play my music for our 3rd concert and it was awesome… Then i got expelled and sent to a “program” to correct my attitude. It ended with me being taken out 2 days later because I tried to kill my self and i was put on meds for depression and anger issues. After that i just couldn’t play properly I don’t know why its like the feeling of music just … left me my creativity was drained and i felt like i was missing something from me and i stopped participating in music class and just felt like a robot most of the time and now we fast forward to now i haven’t played or even picked up a saxophone since 2009 and i’ve been feeling what i misses for years… I was placed on new meds about 2 months ago and i have been feeling the music that i feel was stripped away from me for years i am going to buy a new saxophone tomorrow and I’m feeling good i am feeling like my old self just a bit happier wish me luck that I’ve still got the music in me

Well, in no particular order:
