    I thas been a long year. My wife's illness and passing, and now a move to a new city. My playing has taken quite a hit to say the least.

    Now that I am settling down in routine that is almost, but not quite, sane it is time to start thinking about getting back to some serious practice sessions. I have the space, I have the time. And now the drive to practice is back!

    Hwy...I now live in Music City (i.e. Nashville). People here won't put up with as much as they did in my little town in Georgia!

    Does anybody have a recommendation for a teacher in Nashville?

    My condolences on your wife's passing:-(

    A new start is what you need, alright. sounds like you've got it going, nothing better to help set your mind right than the challenge of getting back in shape. try to find an ensemble/band to join, it'll get things into a finer focus for you..............Buck:play::thumbsup::oops:

    I'm so sorry for your loss! I have a couple of friends in Nashville - I'll see what they can tell me about who's teaching in the area. What kind of instructor are you looking for?

    OH...I have my eye on a community band already! But I need some practice time and maybe some lessons before I can play in front of anybody but my dog (even he howls at me now!)

    Flugelgirl - I need an instructor that will challenge me on the fundamentals, but will keep things fun too. Any info your friends could pass on would be great!

    Hi Chuck!
