    I read an article in the NYT that indicated that memorization is not something that some people can do and some can't, it is a trained skill. There are many tricks to memorization, but you have to practice it. My motivation for learning to memorize songs and memorizing more songs, is to be able to play outside when it is windy.

    Of course the better the song is, the more memorable...

    For all the women out there that read this thread, you know my posts are all equal opportunity. So this answer could apply to either sex, right? In this case I do believe Myszolow is referring to the "repair man stereotype" that when bending down, has their tool belt tug a bit on the pants. Right Myszolow. Isn't that what you mean?

    Don't worry all you TM posters reading KT's pained remark. He won't stay mad very long... He's demented! [Lack of oxygen from blowing too long and hard on his Asymmetric]

    no -- I'm not mad -- now that I just revolutionized my thinking -- women have the best memories. This is true -- you go home and tell your wife this as your taking out the trash or washing dishes ---------"WARDEN IS THIS PART OF MY WORK RELEASE PROGRAM" ---- she will never forget that ---- and will remind you for the rest of your life- ---I dare you -- go ahead and try it -- you'll see ---- I'm right ---- I double dare you guys to do thatROFLROFLROFL

    Did you go to the same high school as I did? By what you written, I may think so as Sousa was the agenda and during WWII that was about the only music we had available. Julius FuciK's Entry of the Gladiators written in 1857 was first used by Ringling Bros as the song for entry of the clowns into the ring and that was before Ringling brothers bought Barnum & Bailey and combined their circuses. It was to Ringling Bros that Dr. Cameron went when he left Sousa. He left Ringling when their tent burned in Hartford CT.

    BTW; Agree that there are some tunes that trumpeters need to practice until they play it intuitively. The section needs to be clear, and perhaps have some rehersals to ensure the section is OK. Just having the music in their sights is enough of a confidence booster for brain fade.

    BTW Ivan, nice BLOG. Thanks

    Not all can spell, though (and sadly enough) not all can read.
