PERSONAL MUSIC HISTORY

• Started cornet music lesson at age 7, played in grade school, Junior High and High School bands in Ponca City OK.
• Played for my own enjoyment until about age 30. I didn’t make a conscious decision to quit I just drifted away from it.
• At our 45th HS reunion one of my HS band mates had his trumpet with him and I couldn’t get a note out of it. When I got home I dug out my cornet and sent it off to get it refurbished, after getting some semblance of a lip I told Karen it would be nice to have a band to play in. She found Denton New Horizons Band and I joined in 2008.
