    We just finished a rehearsal with my Branson Trumpet Ensemble. There’s nothing better than sight reading new charts with good friends for a couple of hours.

    Put up a blog on melody playing, prepped a Strad trumpet just back from the platers, repaired a Conn 8D french horn and a Cerveny Flugelhorn, did some layout work on my new melody book, gave a lesson...and am now opening a beer.

    Warm up, rest, flexibility exercises, rest. Lesson with Keith Fiala, got hammered intensely with a new endurance exercise he gave me, then off to work I went. Now my wife is making something that smells amazing downstairs......

    Normal routine consisting of warm-up, work on flexibility studies, multiple tonguing, a couple of Characteristic Studies in the Arban, working on the Honegger Intrada, giving a private lesson, and ending the day with an old cornet solo in the Arban.

    KT, thanks for the plug! Had a great chance to meet cyber_shake AKA Blaine, who droped in to see me at the Blue Whisp. This was so special and it really makes one feel great to connect with another TM member. I am hoping he survived our high energy rhythm section!

    Blaine brought in his Getzen Power Bore and man is IT a BEAUTIFUL horn. It plays so open and has a perfect balance. And man did Tom Green do a fabulous job in restoring that horn. It is a work of art. I am sending my olds in to Tom next month, assuming I can score a back up Recording from my little brother, as we have several gigs in July and I need a horn badly. Hay Blaine, if my brother falls through, I'm a thinkin...
