i'm Xtopher and i'm . . . TRYING . . . to learn tenor recorder. when i was a kid, i studied classical organ for 6 years, clarinet for 4 in marching band and concert orchestra in high school and (as a favour to the band director) tuba for 2. now that i'm all grown up and diagnosed with bipolar disorder, i decided to get music back into my life. i chose tenor recorder because i THOUGHT it would be easy (boy, was i wrong) and i thought it was so obscure that nobody would be able to tell if i sucked (wrong again). but i'm glad to have music back in my life and look forward to being good enough to play with a local ensemble some day.
