"Spring" HA!...Band Concert


...the Spring Band Concert was last night...That's Scout in the back row beside the two tubas...

...he's having a bit of a hard time playing the trumpet with his new braces...his teacher says he's doing fine...he just has to sort of re-learn mouth positions to accomodate the new hardware...He plays first trumpet...but he said he skipped some of the high notes last night...as he thought a missed note would be worse than no note...I thought they sounded just fine...

  2. yes, they sounded great!

    look at this

    http://www.braceguard.com/

    robert used this product for several years - you make a little tiny, flat mold that fits your front teeth/braces - it lasts for months and is very flexible. what you buy makes 2 or 3 molds - looks like bubble gum but is a permanent shape when you mix the two compounds. rob just kept it in his trumpet case all the time. a neat product that does what it says.

    and no worries, after the braces are off, the tones will come back! (robert had braces on for 4 years - all of which he was playing trumpet!)

    love, k
