Subject: Trumpeter's.
"There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality. There is one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury. And then there is the dark side."

Michael Stewart, (adapted from a Nike ad.)

The ten year old is takin' music this year...had his eye on the trumpet...tested poorly on it...did much better with the trombone...he's taken to it and is always up for practice...even outside I hear the bellow of the Bull Elephant...I expect he'll "lay waste" to his band mates and their 'lesser' instruments in the same way he's laying waste to my hearing.

My grandson turned 11 last month but summer a year ago he decided to start learning to play my old cornet that I played in HS and college. I had been thinking about starting again, so I bought a trumpet and am slowly trying to get back into playing. He is also learning the guitar, and he and his teacher played "Ode to Joy" for my daughters wedding.

The trumpet is a great instrument. Saw a Texan/Latino band that had a full orchestra with trumpeters. It was epic. thumb up
