So all of a sudden my dad got the shiv from his job. While he's in between things he's been seriously considering taking up the horn again. I of course am completely encouraging this. He wants to take a couple years and really get his chops back, form a group, then start giving trumpet and theory lessons (he's got a master's in composition from UNT). This is sort of his retirement plan for himself. He's going to take the Leblanc home with him and get started, but it's an old horn that he and my grandfather used a lot and the valves are getting a bit worn. So we're going to look for a horn for him too! He's expressed an interest in a Getzen Severinsen, our budget is about 700 bucks I think we'll be able to find something nice for that. He's coming over Tuesday and we are going to go through some Aebersold books and just have fun, I may be in my mid twenties but I feel like a 5 year old on his birthday! I so excited! Hope everyone is well.
