Remembering by Posher10 A boy, stolen from his family and sold into slavery, remembers very little about his life from before. His one crystal clear recollection is of a girl, whose name he does not remember, nor that she is his twin sister. He only knows they were close and thinks of her often, especially when things are hard. She is his light in the dark and he hopes that one day, they will be reunited.

1 Long Tones (for my father) by DebbieKatz I play the clarinet because my father does. He was my mentor on the instrument, & he always made me start our practice sessions with a series of long tones - holding each note for at least 8 beats, from soft to loud to soft again. This helps with breath & dynamic control, as well as creating a good solid sound. I didn't like long tones - I thought they were boring.
