My name is Mike and I'm a tuba player. My Grandfather was a Euphonium player, and my Father encouraged me to take up the Tuba (good asthma therapy, he said). I even encouraged my younger brother to become a tuba player after me.
Now my 10 year-old nephew has decided to join the school band. He says he can't decide which instrument is his favorite, the saxophone or the flute (AACCKKKK!!!).
What have I done to deserve this? Or more constructively, what can I do about it ?
My sister-in-law did tell me there is hope - the young lad has started talking about trumpet (UUUURKKK!!!)
This is getting painful to watch.
Thanks for your patience,
