Got a clarinet!

My partner pulled the trigger on this for me, to shut me up going on about wanting one lol.
It's a Bb student clarinet made by Windsor, whoever they are. Trouble is A) I'm full of cold with a tickly cough and sinus pain so blowing is painful, and B) the supplied mouthpiece/ligature is badly made, making it harder to play. I hope to get that sorted soon...

Couple of practice pieces-piano

I've been learning to read piano pieces from a book (Classic Piano Course by Carol Barratt) and have made video recordings of my progress.

Had a set up done on my ukulele

After 2 years of playing with a ukulele that's slightly out I took it in for a set up. Ron did a great job and it sounds much better now. I also got a strap button put on.

Piano Practice

Back to piano...I'm currently practicing a Czerny exercise to help my reading of music and hand independence.  I play it each night for half an hour till it's perfect.

Never on a Sunday-alto recorder

This is a song from a 1960s film called Never on a Sunday. I heard it played on Tuba on instagram and I hunted it down on youtube, watching numerous videos and then picking out the notes. I played it on my Yamaha YRA312B Alto recorder.
