(maybe they will buy that nd get you a teacher!) :D
I don't think I was very descriptive as to why my parents won't let me get lessons. My dad sometimes gets a lot of money and sometimes we get just enough to get by on. He's a self employed lawyer. This is one of his not so good years but things are looking up. My siblings have had music lessons and my parents both play guitar so they are in no way opposed to music. But thanks anyway...you learn something new everyday!
