    Well I rehearsed with the band for 2 hours last night. Practicing all by yourself & playing with a group are 2 different things. Sometimes I was playing high or low. Most of the music I practiced I could keep up with but the unfamiliar stuff was a real problem. A couple of the numbers I did not try at all. The members were all great, supportive & said see you next week! Over all it felt great!:thumbsup:

    Now I wish there were a community marching band close to me.
