when i think about the differences between this summer and last music comes to mind.
this past school (my day job) year was long for me. but, i successfully completed it. one of the ways i was able to do so was music. i was able to join an all brass quintet and play christmas tunes around the neighborhood. we took it a step further and played for a youth fundraiser activity. while everyone else was getting ice cream (ncsu made) we were getting ready to play.
we practiced for about an hour on and off for a few months. we played out of the canadian brass book. i love this stuff. the unique thing is that this was similar yet very different from playing taiko.
the future posts will attempt to compare and contrast the 5 senses i experienced with playing trumpet with taiko. in doing so, i hope to convey not only how music is important to me, but in doing so, shed some light into why i enjoy playing as a member of a group and not solo practice time.
