    Thanks Jim! I've been using a 51D for most of the last year since returning to music, and it has seemed important to be consistent as I re-learn how to play and wait impatiently for my embouchure to...

    My hubby did both of those things. He went from undergrad to PhD in engineering without getting a master's degree, and he got paid a lot of money along the way to do it. He has never for a minute...

    My parents took me to the choose-your-instrument-day at school the summer before sixth grade. We all assumed I'd choose something small to go with my stature, so I started on clarinet. I hated the...

    I often joke that my particular ratio of instrument to human ought to qualify me for a special parking pass! At the very least, euphoniums and tubas should be allowed to opt in to the percussion...

    If this was Facebook, I'd give this a "Haha" react. It seems silly to make a separate post just to show appreciation of a pun, but for lack of a React option... thanks for the laugh today. :)

    Comparing euphonium stands

    Hey guys!

    So I asked Santa for a euphonium stand for Christmas this year, but he had some follow-up questions. I guess some elves build in the toy shop and others go out and shop in stores and...

    jcirkoff and John are both right. Standard deduction did double last year, but that would only be applicable if you were deducting the cost as a medical expense (which is unlikely). Deducting a...

    We know music is fundamentally mathematical. Rhythms are but fractions and notes are frequencies at defined intervals. Non-western music may have notes that we don't acknowledge as notes, per se,...

    Thank you all for responding! Seems fairly unanimous. So, follow up: if your career had been with a municipal symphony that didn't boot you out after so many years, would you play forever then?
