Playing music together. There are those golden moments when everyone on stage works perfectly in unison. That makes it all worthwhile.
The trombone has a very vocal quality that has always appealed to me.
I had many career aspirations. Among other things, I wanted to be a journalist.
Piano – because it is the key to all creative aspects of music-making and also wonderfully versatile. Guitar – for that little concert around the campfire. Trumpet – because of Mahler’s 5th Symphony. Cello – the tonality and pitch are related to the trombone. I’m probably programmed to enjoy this kind of soundscape the most.
