Last night I attended my eldest grandson’s birthday party and had the pleasure of listening to his younger brother and sister play a few tunes on their clarinets. How they have improved! It seems like only yesterday little Caty was playing of a ‘recorder’ at school, now she’s quite accomplished and can even knock out a tune in concert with her elder brother.
And as for Cameron, her elder brother…well…he’s become so good that at seventeen he’s off to perform with an Sydney orchestera which is going to perform in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. He’s becoming really proficient and it seems there is no heights to which he cannot rise as a concert saxophonist and clarinet player. Marvellous!
Of course, they’ve both worked hard and regularly in practice and that is, of course, the so-called ‘secret of success.’ Dint of application and never ever giving up, is what brings the rewards.
I wish them both well.
