I`m an aerospace software engineer. I played fife in a local fife and drum core in about 2nd and 3rd grade, and then studied flute in public school and with private teachers during grades 4 through 12. Then there were cars, girls, engineering school..., and unfortunately I did not take any practical music courses in college. Now, 28 years later, my daughters are getting into music and I`ve been enjoying it with them. When I was about 12, no one told me repadding a flute was hard, so I did. I`m interested in learning to repair instruments too.
