Tooty flutey Tuesday, 3 October 2006
About a month or two ago, I enrolled on a flute course at City Lit in central London. It cost me £222 for 30 classes between September and June, which seems a lot to lay out, but at £7.40 a class, you just cannot beat it.

Last Friday was the first lesson. Very enjoyable. There are fifteen of us, of many ages and various levels of competence. Many of the folk are complete beginners, though there's two or three of us who have some playing history.

I chose to go in at level one - the beginner's level. Bear in mind, that although I have been playing flute for over two years, I am self-taught, so there will probably be some bad habits to unlearn. Though it never did Ian Anderson any harm, I guess I would like to gain some kind of 'orthodoxy' in my playing, whatever that may be. It is nice to be able to assist the others in their learning, and the tutor seems to appreciate my assistance!

It will be great to be able to play along with others. And there will be a performance given at the end of each term, so all the better to learn.

So there's my Friday evenings - tooting da flute.
