Growing up my parents had to have been envious of families where children decided to play a small instrument — you know, like the piccolo or flute. Instead I plagued our living room for years with a giant upright bass. It was larger than I was and there was never, ever a good place to put it. How do you make it all fit?
Some parents have the space to turn a basement or rec room into an instrument play place while others aren't so lucky. Friends would keep their instruments in their closets, under beds (even a trombone would have been easier to hide than a bass!) or even under side tables in living rooms!
