    Re: Bright? Bad?

    Good News! I got my solo back!
    I respect my band director he is very good but this is just the weirdest thing he has ever done.
    Our concert was last night and the person who played my solo was very flat and and quiet, so he gave it back, I quess he likes my sound again.
    I really don't think there was ever anything wrong with my sound.

    GREAT news! I am very happy for you!

    You just continue to do what your PRIVATE instructor tells you.

    I don't think there was anything wrong with your sound either.

    It sounds as if you are doing well!

    You have to think about what you want to accomplish in a situation like this.

    If you want to make the teacher happy, say I'll work on it and do a little.

    If you want freedom of expression, just play what comes out of the bell.

    Remember right or wrong the band director is a powerful person in your life and can make your life miserable.

    Usually, unless the band director is a trumpet player, your private teacher will know how to make you play better but I think it wise to keep the band teacher happy.

    Record yourself. Do you like what you hear? If so, tell your director that you are working on it while telling him under your breath to take a hike. DO NOT conform your sound to what others like. Change your sound ONLY to make yourself happy.
