Well, my younger son, who made it to third chair trumpet in his band, has changed instruments. He will now be playing the baritone/euphonium. This is at the suggestion of his band teacher. He tried out on the baritone, and everyone said that from just that short try-out, he may actually make first chair! I don't know if I should have done it or not, but I dropped an entire paycheck on a euphonium for him....so he can bring it home and not have to worry about damaging the one that belongs to the school.
