If I wasn’t Psychic, I say I be a Flutist. Gosh every time I look back my flute, I think of all the wonderful memories I had in being in the band. I don’t care if I was called a band geek either. It was just nice to be part of the world of music. I remember working so hard to work prove to people I could play the flute. People didn’t believe I had the talent back then but it was my passion and love for this instrument that kept me going to where it defined me for who I am today. Granted it took me a few years to get to make it first chair, I was always proud of being able to play the instrument. It was the one class I look forward to doing.
I even loved marching band and I wished my dad would have drove to me UCLA for the audition when they requested my presence. I pretty sure I would have had the shot to make into their prestigious band as because when I sent my audition tapes I was able to get called into auditions. Not only to UCLA but even the Southern California orchestra even requested my presence My private flute teacher was so proud of me too. The reason I completely stopped that dream was because my father didn’t approve of me being a music major lol… because to him music was not a job, but to me I love the playing music. I felt connected to the universe just playing or practicing my music. I will say that music heals my heart and soul. Any time i was frustrated I would play my instrument and it would take it away. When my flute broke, I actually overhauled it twice and what made it amazing was people commented on my talent more.
My dad still talks about it to this dad how he regretted the decision that he did. he was the type that didn’t support my flute playing. I forgive him its ok… if anything I think my biggest achievement was able to play at my brother’s piano recital with his piano teacher as a duet. I loved it and even though I did it as a favor and was an intermission, it was so nice how everyone came up to my parents and chatted about me to them. I think just that event opened my father’s eyes as he didn’t realize how talented I was.
Would I invest in playing the flute again? Sure would… I plan on investing in getting another flute one day this time a professional flute, something I wanted. Would a pursue a career out of it? Probably not! but It’s sure nice to play it and receive healing energy from it. Have you do anything and wish you could relive it again or wish you made that dream come true? What is it? What are your thoughts?
