Last night, I came home sooooo tired and sore from what seemed like two days straight of moving gear and rehearsals. Literally, carrying around tam tams by hand around NYC. Yikes. Anyway, my roommate was facetiming with a friend and mentioning her waking up habits and iPhone alarms and I mentioned how on the last outreach concert I performed, a kid asked me if I could play the iPhone marimba ringtone. I felt surprisingly incompetent when I couldn't.
So last night was the perfect opportunity. I think I'm missing a couple notes, but considering I was kind of delirious and didn't spend any time on it, I'm glad I can say that if there's ONE thing I accomplished in life, it's that I can now play the iPhone ringer for children's entertainment.
