That's awesome. My sister-in-law is a fairly successful opera soprano in the UK.My mother was a musician, an oboe player. When it came time to learn an instrument, she wouldn't let me anywhere NEAR her beautiful oboe. I wanted to play trumpet, but she had an old Bundy flute. She said, "Shut up and blow!". I really did well with the flute. I went to school on a flute, voice and football scholarships! I know, interesting right? I was first chair flute my freshman year in college in both the university band AND orchestra! I really wanted to get drafted for football, but I had reconstructive surgery on my knee (now have full knee replacement on said knee!). So no more football! I, then, started to sing a LOT more. I had my first professional opera contract when I was 20! I sang operas, oratorios and musical comedies for over 40 years! Now, I just hum to myself not to startle other people!!
