started to learn how to play the trumpet when I was 10 years old. my uncle was a musician, a brass band musician, kaya gusto niya matuto rin ako. ganun sa province. enjoy naman. masaya. maraming magagandang experiences.

Bro ako kaya ko biglang nahilig sa sax....

kasi minsan sa gig namin Theatrino green Hills, sa back stage may nagwawarm up na saxophone player.. aztig ung player! naramdaman ko yung mga licks at melody nya.. galing sa puso! kahit na improvise lang.. ibang kalse talaga.. may blues line pa sya kaya mas nakaka agaw attention..simula nun nahilig nako makinig ng may mga brass at winds instrumens.. kaya naghahanap ako ngayon ng alto sax. tingin ko mas malalabas ko yung music and emotions ko pagnagsasax nako.. well sana makahap nako ng Saxophone...

Kaya ngayon Stop muna ako mag bass and i will start a new challenge!

I want to feel MORE MUSIC!!!!

AZTIG Kayo lahat!! Rock on! Saludo ako!

I started playing the trumpet because I found the idea of being able to play just one instrument boring and not to mention limiting.
I'd rather be sharp than flat.

The very first time I heard Paul Desmond's Take Five and Ben Webster's My Romance, I hastily bought an alto sax thinking that it is something I can learn without the help of a teacher, but I was wrong.  :oops:
..now I have my sax under my bed, nevertheless, still enjoy listening to a lot of sax players. It was the instrument that opened my ears to Jazz music- yun na lang ang consuelo de [grape] sakin.  :-D

I used to bring my younger brother to our local brass band and fetch him afterwards.. until one time the TUBA(Sousaphone) was there lying around i tried to play a bit not knowing the teacher was watching so he called me up and said " o maupo ka na jan sumabay ka na dito sa mga bata mag lesson" so it started i earned up a spot in the band afterwards i had to give it all up when i started working
