Eight Things Every Woodwind Player Should Know

There are so many different instruments out there. For example, you have the clarinet, saxophone, and flute all in the wood wind family. What makes them a woodwind instrument is that you use wood to either make them or play them. The only thing is, how can you play better? Make a better sound out of your horn?

Just for a couple examples. Keep your instrument clean. Want to know why? When you play spit, microscopic pieces of reed, and dirt/skin cells from your fingers get into your horn. Disgusting, right? Well, if you keep your horn clean, it tends to sound better because there isn't anything stopping the air flow, and it makes your instrument last longer. Doesn't that sound great? Also, give your instrument at least one check up a year. When you bring your instrument into the repair shop, they align, oil, and fix any problems in your instrument. This will make your instrument easier to play and sometimes even sound better.

Universal Health Care: Not as Good as it Sounds

Everyone wants health care, which is why this bill is so important. According to the News, millions of people cannot afford health care because of the high prices. My family is fairly conservative, so I don't believe in government hand outs, such as 'free health care,' so I took a look at the bill. I mean, if the bill was written to where it would actually help people, why not let it pass? Well, I was definitely wrong. When reading the bill the one thing I thought was, the government is now going to try and control American's health. They're going to give ACORN and other programs many pay offs. A doctor cannot own or invest in health care, so a person who has no idea about medicine and doctoring will run it. Doesn't that make you feel safe?

As Americans, I hope we can stop the government control of our health care. I mean, where would they stop? There has to be other answers to the AMERICANS who cannot afford health care who WANT it. Thank you!
