… just read this.
Hmmm. I have to confess it made me cringe a bit. I hate stereotypes. I also hate suggesting one instrument is more difficult than another. I can’t say I’ve seen that brass players are more conservative either. But then I don’t discuss politics — or much of anything, really! — with my colleagues. And that viola thing? …
And it seems none more so than violists, who, historically, used to step down from the more difficult violin as they aged, switching to the lower-voiced instrument that supposedly required less proficiency.
Well, maybe patti with an i will jump in here about that.
