2nd Baritone

I have been learning to play the Baritone horn for three years now since my retirement and have found it strangely addictive. I have always found it fascinating to blow down bits of tubing to produce a note and its harmonics since plumbing our house and blowing down 3 meter copper tubing.

Also enjoying Ballroom Dancing and dancing to wonderful swing music based on trumpet and brass big band, I always thought I would love to have a go at that, so here I am.

Started having Cornet lessons with Ann in June 2019, after 2 lessons Ann produced a Baritone Horn for me to try and that’s what I decided to continue with. Absolutely loving it.

The support and encouragement from Ann, Band Members and Friends has been great.
