The other 2 in Pretoria will optimistically follow suit; both their fogeys are professional musicians. My daughter in law on piano, euphonium and French Horn and my son on the tuba, bass guitar and percussion. I NEVER told him to apply; he fell fond of his tuba like I've fallen passionate about a piano the first time I saw/heard it, he just could not get enough of it. I was two decades 1991 2011 the administrator every thing except full time instructor of a music center, MUSIC was/is my PASSION!And so is writing and curiously also interacting with kindred souls in CyberSpace : It has to be bedtime for you, Shauna Sleep tight, rest well!b. Malin, always so nice to see you in my corner. Now there, you, too, prove that most writers are usual clarinetist. It is NOT easy to march while one plays an device desiring air/breath to supply sound. Breathing and blowing air into the device have a rhythm of its own, and then you must march on the beat in perfect line with the rest!Now this is an art by itself. Much easier to be a drum majorette. The individuals of our orchestra hated marching initiatives. And yet, it is such an effective show!My son is a professional tuba player in one of our army bands.
