You never know just how hard it is to pick up a trumpet and play a simple scale after going 7 months without playing any brass instuments at all!
For 6 years i played Trumpet, French Horn, and Tuba. After my 3rd year of marching band in high school i decided i was tired of my directors constant complaining and mistreatment of the band. In 4 years of working there he has made the band shrink to under half its original size so i quit. I only have one more year of school so i figured it didnt make a difference anyway, but just the other day i got some great news. The band director at the school my step dad works for asked me to come march for their band next year! It turns out they have been dieing to have me since they have seen me at there competitions.
While im on spring break I found it to be a good time to pick up my trumpet and start getting ready for the next year since it has been 7 month of not playing anything but drums :P I knew it was not going to sound that great but i had no idea i was only going to be able to play 30mins befor I couldent even get a sound out of it .
