I've been meaning to join your group for awhile now. I'm a comeback player...went at least 12 years without playing at all. David over at David's Instruments in Dallas, TX, resurrected my 1979-1980 LA Benge trumpet for me. I spent about 1 1/2 years working back up to my former self (still not quite there) before I had the guts to play with a local regional orchestra. I've played three concerts with the orchestra and my confidence has come back quite a bit. This past summer I volunteered with the local marching band and still do occasional sectionals with the High School and Junior High kids. I have a few private trumpet and French Horn students at the Junior High (the band director talked me into learning the French Horn last summer, which I actually like). Band program there is not what I'm used to, but the new band director is really turning things around. Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself!
