I was lucky enough to go to university at the University of North Texas. And I was also lucky enough to be in the Brass Band that Brian Bowman conducts. I've got to say that as hard as Brass Band is it is super addicting!! I've been in the group for 5 different semesters and played everything from Solo to Repiano and now I am on Flugelhorn. I am disappointed because I am ending the end of my degree and there are no Brass Bands in Texas! I really want to keep playing in one but I don't know where to find one/how to start one. Any suggestions?
