Live in St. Louis. Played sax in high school and college and later baroque recorder. Have played the GHB for many years. As I approached retirement I determined to learn to play the Irish flute, a sound of which I never tire. Fortunately, I was able to connect with an excellent instructor and am making good progress under her guidance. I am playing a Windward simple system flute made in Nova Scotia and absolutely love it — a highly responsive and sweet toned instrument.
