Still, the style of Sousa's bands was emanated by many other bands in those earlier eras.
BigDub, KT did it again.
As I was the youngest child in our family, I too was influenced by my older brothers who also played brass instruments and were going to eventually be in High School band. I just couldn't see how to carry a piano, and wanted to go for a much smaller instrument, and first started with a school French horn before buying my own trumpet. I'm now happy as heck to to have the memory of actually being in the same high school band for 2 years that my late brother also played in and while he played bass instruments (baritone, tuba, and Sousaphone), I played the trumpet. At home we often played duets.
Yes, whomever a child wants to study with is very important. The same appliess to an adult. If both are not compatible to each other, I don't believe optimum progress will occur. I often demonstrate during the 20 minute rest of the students in the middle of our 1 hour sessions as I believe keeps their goals in view.
Well, only lately have I been straightened out to play that "thing" better ... but I'm "grounded" now from practice or playing anything until I get cleared again by my Docs.
Sorry God, I won't be in church this morning. Don't want to pass what I got to others in the congregation, if it is contagious. Sure don't feel well enough to sing any hymns. Now gonna try to drink a hot tea and go back to bed and try to get some more sleep.
