    My goal would be to work through Arbans back to front which would make me DCO.

    Actually building (which has just been completed) and stocking my new music room. Just added my third keyboard (to my Hammond Organ and Moog Synthesizer), and next, a drum kit.

    I am busy with survival. My job is eating my time up so I am only working on maintenance. For the time being, repertory simply has to be there without additional practice (and is).

    I am doing long tones, chromatic scales, and slurs. All from middle C and below. My tone is coming back to full. I can feel more support from my embouchure and its local muscles. My chops are getting there but I need more practice before I attack Arban-Clarcke. I am also doing my "honey do list". I am glad to be a member of this site. I am also watching eagles fly up and down the coast of my lake.
