I played in bands from 5th grade through college. Since
graduation from college in 1964, I had only played about 6 months until about a year ago
when I began playing with the Frisco Community Band. I decided to take up my instrument
again about two years ago when I was asked to play with a brass ensemble for the funeral
of my college band director, Dr. Raymond T. Bynum. That experience convinced me that I
should play again.
