We loved the show in Somverville last month. How did you come to play the violin & the trumpet -- not what I think of as similar instruments? You're great on both!

Hi, and thanks! The shows in Somerville were great fun. I grew up playing classical violin, and when I was in middle school, I decided to play the french horn in the middle school band. I played french horn for about 5 years, and then stopped. I always loved the trumpet -- so when I joined Dan's band, I picked one up, and turns out my french horn playing helped me to teach myself to play the trumpet! I have a long way to go with the trumpet, but it's a lot of fun playing more than one instrument. Thanks again for the kind words!
Hope to see you at a show soon!
