    I like people who get mad, too many these days are emotionless.

    Welcome to the site.

    That's outrageous! I've heard of that happening, it's certainly not limited to your locale, but it sucks no matter where it occurs. As a band director, I can sympathize with those who want balanced instrumentation. But music is in enough trouble without rejecting the student's preference. Geez!

    You will get better I assure you. Congratulations. Welcome. There will be plenty of good advice here and I hope you have the discernment to know which words to toss and which to take!
    I myself never stopped, entirely, but I took some breaks which never helped anything. I can't imagine how hard it would be to stop for a long time and start up again, but from many of my friends here I know it can be done with much success. Your commitment is the key!

    Welcome! This site has done me a world of good in my comeback progress. Best wishes in your adventure. For slow work on basics works better than trying to do too much too quick.

    I stopped for 45 yrs! I've been working on a comeback for about six months. It has been harder than I thought but I'm enjoying it.

    I stopped for 50 years and I've been working on my comeback for 22 months and it is still hard...but oh so satisfying when I have a good day. And there are more good days than bad as the months move along.
