  1. Recommendations and differences between these TM-60C Korg tuners?

    1) The suffices here just denote a different color?
    Korg TM-60BK, Korg TM-60SV, and Korg TM-60WH
    So black, silver, and white respectively. They otherwise function identically?

    Nothing that hasn't already been covered. I don't travel often, but because a flute is quite compact, I take that with me. It doesn't really help the euphonium (except for the part about reading...

    I've heard from the other euphonium player in my community band that as you approach older ages (60s, if not 50s), your lips will take a hit in performance. He was telling that to a trumpet player...
  6. COVID-19. How long should I wait after someone else uses my instrument?

    I'm taking my euphonium to a professional for cleaning and general maintenance. Last time I've done this was 3 years ago. When I went to pick it up, he blew into the instrument as part of a demo...

    Thanks for all the infos!

    I am NOT a professional musician, so I can afford to be more lax about practice. That said, I did invest in an instrument, and it has been a fun hobby for me (especially...

    On follow up, is 10 minutes a day worth bothering with (still better than nothing I'm sure), or should I just cut my losses? Is there some minimum length for a practice session (with or without...

    Building up endurance aside, would there be significant differences between practicing 10 minutes a day, vs. 45 minutes spread out over the same time period?

    Etiquette in requesting lessons?

    Last semester, the lead euphonium player brought up that he's going to be in surgery. That and the recovery time will mean he'll be sitting out for the whole, next semester. He'd like to give me...
  16. Any experiences with Invisalign and how it'll affect practice and performance?

    May need new springs for Yamaha YEP-321?

    I've noticed that when I stand the springs straight up, it seems to tilt slightly. I suspect it may cause the valve itself to grind on the sides of the casing (inside). Even if it's slight, it may...
