sudcornet said:I was eight, had been playing violin for 2 years and was ****, so when the violin teacher had a heart attack and died on York Station, my mum took it as an omen and asked the bandmaster to let me have a go on a cornet.....32 years later some would say still **** on cornet!!
Sounds similar to me, I wasted two years playing a clarinet and even dabbled with a bassoon before finally realising that my future was brass!
Still even that can be a challenge ... how did you choose the instrument for you? For me I've tried every instrument ... bar trombone!
