    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...

    I have been playing the trumpet

    since I was 10 years old. I have had different times in my life, that I have improved my skills to different levels. I think I will talk about that from time to time and see if others are interested.

    Dunno about anyone else,

    but when I play my trumpet, it's almost like I can forget about the world for a bit.

    Trying To Get My Tone Back Right Now Its Mediocre
