It all started freshmen year when Mr.Alvarez switched me from saxophone to the tuba. Switching to tuba has impacted my life greatly because it has made me the musician I am today. As soon as I blew into the tuba I made a sound, he said it was made me and so I switched over it has been the most rewarding experience in my life.
I self-taught myself to play the tuba in two weeks. Eventually I became good enough to play with the ensemble at school. To achieve this I practiced numerous hours of fundamentals, and literature that was given to me. I also find an instructor to provide me with lessons so I could be the best I could be. This is one of the instructors that has made the musician I am today by teaching me everything that it takes to play the tuba, he had inspired to become a better tuba player every step of way in this transition in my musical career.
Last year is when my hard work showed off, this was the year when I started to get serious and tried out for any honor bands or evaluations that I could possibly do. I achieved being able to be a part of two honor bands in our district I made third chair for all-county and second chair for bay winds these past two years. My growth as tuba player inspired me to be part of two ensembles for district solo & ensemble my sophomore year and junior year. I’ve accomplished a superior rating for both ensembles. In my senior year I hope to accomplish to play a grade 6 solo and
