As years have gone by, the greatest lesson I have learned is that there is ALWAYS more to learn.  Past every mountain crest is another ridge, another drop off, another steep ascent.  Just when you learn to tie a beautiful blank, you realize that there is so much more scraping to be done before the reed will perform the way you wish.  As double tonguing is mastered in Don Juan, circular breathing is waiting around the corner in the ever challenging Strauss Oboe Concerto.  But the greatest goal of all is to find joy on the path to double reed musicianship.  Sharing my love for music with my students is my greatest joy, closely followed by magical performing opportunities.
