joining community band best thing i did after my 15 yr layoff. my reading is back as well as my stamina and chops . i dont have the best decipline to practice on my own so this weekly 2 hrs is just what i need . i highly recommend it
I’ve mentioned a few times that I recently joined a community band. Playing with a band very quickly brings your playing weaknesses to the surface. I read okay and play the right notes after some practice but I’ve been forced to work on my counting. I’m always coming in early or too late. Haha.

The other benefit is that I’ve had to practice every day I can. That alone has made a big difference in my embouchure and tone control.
