(I thought that was quite funny; I played the clarinet for 6 years from grades 6 to 12 (age 11 to 17) and never found it a problem.) She also sang in the school choir (as did I when I was that age) and as well did fencing, ballet, lacrosse, tennis, badminton, volleyball, drama and of course horseback riding. When I was in my first year of college in 2009, I went to a lot of the varsity home games. I also participated in Wednesday noon hour activities in the gym; like basketball, dodgeball, shoe-tossing, etc, as well as Monday night intramural volleyball. Needless to say, I got the school spirit award at the end of the year.

My first college roomate introduced herself by way of saying she was a music/oboe major and that oboists went mad because of the ENOURMOUS pressure it took to play the instrument built back into the brain. It was like - "Hi, watch me go off top dead center." I am sure Anne had a far better intro line at school.
