Memorize just 2 notes on the alto clef staff today. Add one more tomorrow. In a week you'll know all of them.
How I learned bass clef when I was a treble clef baritone player in high school.

Sound advice!

Re: Anonymity

I use Driswood as my login name for a number of websites. It was the name of my Dad’s farm, and was chosen as the name for the elementary school that was built on the front field of the farm - Driswood Elementary

It has sentimental significance to me. But, I always sign my posts with my real name.

$219 for a Gard leather bag compared to $450 for a Cronkhite. I don’t travel with it, and it never gets loaded into an equipment truck.
