Playing on a musical instrument is one of the best things in life, I think. It flies you far away from the problems of everyday life, brings you together with other people and teaches you lots of thing, such as accuracy and self-control. We need self-control in our life, and we need it while we are practising on a musical instrument. As the famous Hungarian composer, Zoltán Kodály said: “We can live without music, as there are roads across the desert, too. But why we should go there, if we can walk through flourishing gardens as well?”
When I was younger, I played the bassoon for many years. This was one of the best period of my life. We formed a chamber music group with my friends. There was one of who played the flute, the other played the piano, the clarinet and there was a friend of mine, who played the bassoon, too. They were very happy times, we came together every Saturday, played joyful music, drank tea, ate cakes and had a very, very good time! If you haven’t tried it yet, I really suggest that you should!
