Learning an Instrument

My daughter is taking piano lessons and she is getting really good. So good the instructor says she has a God given gift. The teacher claims she can be the next Bach or Chopin. She asks if I play any instruments since my daughter is so gifted….

I told her I play the skin flute. It’s an instrument you never quite master and it takes a lifetime of constant practice. Each practice lesson starts out a little rough but has a happy ending. I am a soloist in the Callused and Near Sighted Symphony. When I was a child my mother showed up at one of my performance but only once.
