PETER PRINGLE

 

Back in the 1950's, I remember telling my piano teacher that I would love to play the harp, the flute, and a few other instruments as well. He looked at me disapprovingly and said, “HA! Jack-of-all-trades and master of none!”


I thought this over, and decided that it would be far more interesting to be Jack, than to dedicate myself to doing just one single thing. Besides, no matter how good you get at doing something, there will always be someone who can do it better than you, and others who cannot do it as well.


Music is an amazing adventure. In this website I would like to share with you some of my own interests, experiences and unusual musical instruments I have been involved with over the years. There is nothing for sale on this site. It is here just for your enjoyment, in the hope that something may inspire you along the way. Here's a list of musical instruments that have interested me. If you're curious about any of them, just open the link. Yeah, I know, some of the links are dead.....they will ALL be made active over the next few weeks.
