One Man Band

26 Apr

Our apartment isn’t very sound proof, especially through the front door. Right across the hall from us is a girl we refer to as One-Man-Band. We’ve heard her practice the clarinet, French horn, saxophone and trumpet. They all sound like she’s just learning. We hear lots of scales and the old classics like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star over and over and over and over. Since Rob and I were both in high school band, we’re tempted to go over there and show her how it’s done. When not playing a musical instrument she has worship music blasting and she’s singing along at the top of her longs. Overall, I don’t mind her that much. The further away we are from the door, the less we can hear her. Plus, she only does this during the day, so our sleep is never disturbed.

I've never seen her, but this is what I imagine she looks like

    I’m reminded of times when our neighbor in St. Louis played his records so loud we could not converse! So maybe, you should offer your suggestions! Just don’t make waves!!! :ove Gram Pitoni

      Reminds me of how my mother must have felt during the times I started learning a new instrument as a kid. The noise doesn’t bother us, we’re more impressed with the arrangement of instruments she’s starting to learn. Must be a future music teacher in training. Kudos to her! -Rob
