Subj: Re: [kl] Marching band, choice of instruments
Date: Mon, 25 Oct 2004 18:36:47 -0400

for me in marching band I never really had fun marching until I started on
the Baritone and I believe it made me a better clarinet player...I played the
clarinet one year the Alto sax one year the baritone 2 and the I was on the flag
line and that was fun too...I hated marching with a woodwind in
was hard for me to play them and march at the same time...but the baritone was band director like the brassy sound our marching bad is made up of
mostly brass because he would persuade everyone to made it easier
to grab the clarinet and play concert style then before too.

switched to sousaphone (which I had taken up in eighth grade because
it looked like fun) and had a much better time during my last two years,
while continuing to play clarinet in the concert band.

I remember Claudia's sousaphone days!

I remember as her teacher, having "reservations" about playing a brass
instrument while seriously studying clarinet.

Nowadays, I would say "Go for it Honey!"
