I've heard of duelling banjos before, but trombones??! That's sliding twice as far...;-)
Sounds fantastic! Before the fact, at least. Have you consulted the neighbours?
Um... No.Nathan is in year 5 and started playing this year. He has a school instrument at the moment but needs his own next year. There is a good sale on, so we are getting in early... but not returning the school trombone just yet!
Are you sure you wouldn't rather a bassoon? I'll do you a good deal on one.
nope. not interested. fiddly things! brass all the way![son #2 wants a flute or clarinet next year. how do I respond to that? I think we need a french horn in the family! or a trumpet at least!]
violin for Joel surely!
My little brother learned the trombone when we were growing up. Painful in the early days but better as time went on.What about a saxophone for J?
No. Not a fan. And too expensive.
We've had a violin this year. Quite painful, but duetting (is there such a word?) with the only other instrument in the house - a wooden recorder - did help, both with motivation and with pitch!
It's only greed if you never play it. I have four different fretted instruments sitting on stands beside my desk and I only feel un-greedy if I play each of them at least once a week :) It would be greed if I was to buy a trombone, though, as I can't even produce a note out of one.
Stick to your guns, Simone. Many will come by offering more hip, more sleek, more trendy instruments. In truth I'd respect you a bit less if this post were about a saxophone. Go the trombone.Regards, Ben McLaughlinex year 4 euphonium extrordinaire
Bagpipes always get a reaction. They're great at parties. Hard to sing to though.
