    Bad Recording Day :/

    After struggling for minutes trying to get one of my valve caps on after oiling the valve, I finally got pretty far into a great recording for All State band.....until I stepped on a water bottle halfway through. Fml

    I started playing the trumpet in 4th grade.

    After lunch the band director at the high school would pull the students who appeared to be pretty adept to music out of class and teach them an instrument of their choice -- I chose the trumpet over my other choice, Fr. Horn. I've been playing since -- 4 years in high school...

    Trying To Get My Tone Back Right Now Its Mediocre

    I like to play along with some recordings then it feels like its really syncing in and that I'm learning the best way as far as musicianship. Right now I'm doing a lot of lead so I need to feel authentic or else derail the whole melody. To me the only goal is usually to just make...

    I sure do. And I absolutely love it.

    Going on seven years with my baby. Highest note is an "F" above the staff. On a good day, a double "C". Favorite piece of music? Anything by Bach. Lol. I absolutely love music and I've expanded my playing field out of trumpet to all brass instruments. Gives me a sense of freedom...
