Maryl. 15. Boston Crusaders 2014. I have weird hair, like bright colors, and my life revolves around dead composers and drum corps. Horn and piano are my weapons of choice. (Formerly mellophile) Instagram: maryl_harris Snapchat: maaaaryl French Horn French Horn

I lost it for visual reasons

the-bando-commando: To the anon that asked if he could put a weight on his trumpet, use a pair of shoes and tie the strings together and have it hang over your horn like a power line haha. It won't stay on for any basics where you have to start or end horns down, but it will help with snapping your horn up and building muscle to play without any problems :) Hope this helped.

here you go!

Anonymous: Do people who start off as alternates have to pay a full tour fee?

if they spend the whole season as an alternate, they get a refund.

Anonymous: Wait so I can put weights on my trumpet? Can I put then somewhere where it won't make it like super top-heavy like a mute does?

I’m not a trumpet player, I’d suggest asking one of them for the best advice. Just be smart! Don’t do something that you think will damage your horn.

Anonymous: what weights can you put on your instrument?

anything that works and doesn’t damage it!
ankle weights are easy to attach.
