    For Years.

    You Know It!

    In sixth grade I was told that my school was starting a band program. I didn't really care since I didn't have a choice. They sent home a packet with a list of instruments, and descriptions of each one. I wanted to play the Tuba, but my mom said no. After looking over the...

    Bari Sax?

    I have been playin since I was 9 yo.

    Love the sax.   I have a soprano, and 2 altos.  I've played the bari for years but dont own one right now.  I never got into the mainstreem tenor.  I like being different.

    I'm In Love With Saxes.

    I started in 4th grade, and I'm in 8th now. I play alto but have messed around with tenor, and am now playing baritone in concert band. I also march alto, too. Music is my life ever since I started, and I am so thankful for being awesome and having awesome sax buddies.
