I am a biologist, working as a civil servant in the communications department of my organisation. Took up the saxophone almost 20 years ago and have been playing on and off for about 10 years. I take classes at the local music academy. The last month or two I am getting the impression that I am starting to learn how to play music. Before that it was more like playing a string of notes.... Still a long way to go, but it feels like I am on the right track. And that's a nice feeling.
