    I'll leave that for others to answer; others who fly frequently with their horns can tell you better than I can. I'm less than 200 miles away; I always drive.

    I went 5 times as a senior adult amateur. I would advise you to sign up and GO! You'll return home exhausted, but a much better player.

    I agree with Sara. You don't want a kid schlepping an instrument like that back and forth to school in a trash bag.

    My Dolce turned out to be pretty close on intonation, after I had played it for a year or so (see chart in another post), but if I ever buy a "professional" horn, it WILL have a trigger. I would...

    Like we say here in the South, "Whatever cranks your tractor." I played on a 4-in-line Conn for decades, and since '12 I've been playing a 3+1 comp. I can go back and forth almost without thinking....

    Dr. Richard Demy uses that long slide to achieve quarter-tones for doing Arabic music on the euphonium. He had a video on FB a couple years ago, but unfortunately it's not on YT.

    I asked, but I'm pretty sure it's excerpts from different pieces.

    Edit: Confirmed. Algirdas says the difference is in where the arrangements were made. In European arrangements the euph parts...

    Has anyone ever done a compilation of well-known, public-domain tunes with the melody in both clefs, so that the student can teach him/herself the new clef by having the old one to fall back on?

    I played with all three plates on my "Schiller" for about six months, and then took them off, and couldn't tell any difference. I didn't do this kind of analysis on it, tho.

    It was, and I still like to take it out and play it. What's really nice about that edition (Adam Frey's) is that the piece itself is pretty vanilla, but Adam includes a small tutorial on...

    I learned that piece for the IET Geezer Group solo competition in 2016. At home, I recorded the accompaniment, but instead of using Finale's piano sound, I used a harpsichord. The accompaniment...

    I'm not sure. I'd want to go somewhere where I could spend a number of hours over several days playing all the best horns before I made a decision.

    In a fast passage, I would use it, if it makes the fingerings easier. I may catch some flak for this, but I...
