    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 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...
