Ok, um, WOW!

The way you said they were "relatively well-known" was so non-chalant, that I wasn't sure what to expect.

And then at first all I saw was about their teaching methods. Then I found their bios, a little impressive I'd say! (Does your FIL still have his accent?) {{{swoons}}}

Also, was that your husband beside you in the snowstorm "Soup to Nuts" photos? Rather tall man. <img src="/images/graemlins/beamedup.gif" alt="" />

I wish I knew more about the string instruments so that I could give a personal review on their teaching books. {{{sigh}}} The only strings I know are the piano, though. But that is really cool that you have such a musical family! I am quite jealous. My mom sings, but I'm the first to officially study anything, although my son has picked up the sax quite easily and is now chomping away at the guitar. (I personally want to try my hand at the drums and guitar!)

OK, I've rambled enough. Thanks Megan!

Yeah, that's him. He's pretty well-known himself (do a search for Kevin Wimmer on allmusic.com); he was in the studio this weekend recording with Linda Ronstadt, who I got to meet yesterday (she was very sweet and humble and complimented my shirt). He also appeared in the Season 2 Finale of the HBO show Deadwood, no lines but there was a nice screen shot of him playing the fiddle. And yeah, he's a hulking giant... I'm 5'1", he's 6'4". Even in my very highest heels, the height difference is almost goofy. I usually don't even notice, but once in awhile I'll catch a glimpse of us in a mirror or store window and it's like... wow. I'm tiny.

So when I say I'm an "amateur" musician, maybe take it with a grain of salt, I'm just amateur compared to all of them; I feel like I do pretty well and I can hold my own in a jam session, but it's pretty freakin' humbling being around the Wimmers!

And yes, Harry still has his accent, but it's relatively soft... he doesn't sound like Ah-nold, but he's clearly Austrian.

I forgot to mention about how I played bass clarinet in middle school and early high school band. I was so bad that I mostly got relegated to triangle. I think not practicing (ever.) was part of the issue.

Not me, I'm afraid. Although my husband is a heavy-metal guitarist[imageBellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons. Please use UBB code. If you don't know how to do UBB code just post here for help - we will help out!
