If you haven’t guessed it by now, Ed and I went to Towson together. We also were both in the Epcot Center / Disney All-American College Marching Band in 1982.

Ed plays horn. Don’t hold that against him. :)

Welcome to Dave says you are the low brass man! Would love to hear your input on beginning mouthpeices, baritone vs. euphonium and anything that we not low brass folks might need to know to help our students be successful.

Looking forward to the discussion...again, welcome.
